This Week's NJ COVID-19 Updates

Do you have questions about getting tested for COVID-19, contact tracing, traveling to or from the State of New Jersey, or even finding a new job? The State of New Jersey offers up-to-date information, resources, and guidance at our COVID-19 Information Hub.

Stay Safe During the Holiday Season


With the dangerous increase in COVID-19 cases, this holiday season will be like no other. Travel outside of your home should be limited. Indoor gatherings are limited to 10 people and should be limited to immediate household members if possible. Be smart and careful, so next year we can all celebrate the holidays together. Learn more about how to safely observe holiday traditions and spend time with loved ones attending college or living in long-term care centers.

Protect Your Family with COVID Alert NJ


Download New Jersey’s exposure notification app and add your phone to the fight. The free and secure mobile app anonymously alerts users if they have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. COVID Alert NJ uses Bluetooth proximity technology and will never record any identifying data. Download on the Apple App store or Google Play store.

Vaccine Distribution is Ramping Up

Vaccine Distribution

New Jersey is in the process of rolling out COVID-19 vaccines step-by-step to all adults who live, work, or are being educated in the state. Vaccinations are underway in New Jersey hospitals for paid and unpaid workers serving in health facilities. Learn more about New Jersey’s planned vaccination approach to reach its goal of vaccinating 70 percent of the adult population within six months.

Get Tested!

Test Tube

You could have COVID-19 and not even know it. Find out if you have COVID-19 at any of the 400+ testing sites across New Jersey. Testing is available to everyone in New Jersey. You don’t need insurance and free testing is available. Learn more and find a testing site near you.

Avoid Non-Essential Interstate Travel


New Jersey strongly discourages all non-essential interstate travel at this time. Travelers and residents returning from beyond the immediate region (New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and Delaware) should self-quarantine at their home, hotel, or other temporary lodging for at least 7 days with a negative test or at least 10 days if testing is not available. Learn more about the State's travel guidance.
