Updated Mask Policy (April 2023)
Upon entering an HJAHC facility, you will be asked to wear a mask if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms: fever, rash, cough, and/or congestion. You will also be asked to wear a mask when you go into a clinical space to see a provider. If you feel more comfortable wearing a mask at all times, you may continue to do so.  Wearing a mask is the best practice to protect our staff and others from getting sick.

COVID-19 Test

HJAHC offers saliva polymerase chain reaction (PCR) antigen testing.

HJAHC’s COVID-19 tests are done by providing you with a small tube that you will spit saliva into and provide back to our medical assistant.

HJAHC test results are received within 2 to 4 days, depending on the volume of tests across the state of New Jersey.

HJAHC tests are completely free.

You must have been seen by a HJAHC provider within the past year to schedule an appointment or we can schedule a short consultation with our provider within 24 hours. Often your test can be scheduled the same day.

HJAHC tests are drive-up or walk-up at 321 North Warren Street, Trenton or various locations throughout the city through our Mobile Health Unit. We can provide transportation if you need assistance arriving at our locations. Please take a look for other testing locations outside of HJAHC at www.trentonhealthteam.org.
