Mayor Doug Tomson issued a Health Advisory on Friday, September 18th.  There have been several instances of probable test positives of COVID-19 occurring in Hillsborough Township.  The initial index case was at DC Gymnastics.  In certain circumstances the individuals are either asymptomatic or have very mild symptoms.  The individuals who have tested positive have also had contacts across other community activities.  

“Our Health Team is taking all the necessary precautions to protect our community,” reported Mayor Doug Tomson.  

The Hillsborough Township Health Officer and her team are contacting the individuals to conduct contact tracing.  If you receive a call from Hillsborough Township Health Department regarding your activities, please return their call promptly.  Your cooperation is extremely important.  If you have tested positive or if you receive a call from someone you know who has tested positive, please contact the Hillsborough Township Health Department immediately at 908-369-5652, Monday through Friday 8 am until 4:30 pm, or email during non-business hours to sspano@hillsborough-nj.org.

“It is imperative that you provide accurate and complete information to our contact tracers so that we can protect all of our residents,” stated Hillsborough Township Health Officer, Siobhan Spano.

If you test positive, you can be contagious even if you do not have any symptoms.  Just as a reminder, all positive tests need to be reported to the Health Department.

COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions

I have symptoms of COVID-19 but I can’t get a test. What should I do?
See your doctor regarding your symptoms, as the advice may be different if a patient has other health issues. If you cannot get a test at one of the testing facilities listed on the Township’s web page, then you can try some of the urgent care centers. If you have symptoms, and cannot get a test, assume that you are positive, and follow the CDC recommendations to isolate yourself, until you are fever free for at least 3 days without the use of fever reducing medications, it has been at least 10 days since the start of your symptoms, and you are mostly recuperated from your symptoms. People you were near from 3 days prior to symptoms and after, should quarantine for 14 days from the last time they were near you (within 6 ft for 10 minutes or more).
