TRENTON ( Mercer ) The city of Trenton held a free COVID-19 testing site at the former Columbus park. Well over 100 residents have gotten tested and even received a thanksgiving turkey. The COVID-19 site comes after Trenton’s numbers sky rocketed with covid cases, Trenton’s transmission rate is currently 44.2 cases per 100,000 people, which exceeds both the state and county rates at 29.3 and 28.9, respectively. Trenton has had a total of 4,598 COVID-19 cases with 80 related deaths. “It’s clear the second wave is here and has hit the Capital City especially hard,” said Mayor Gusciora. “Our transmission rates may even be higher now than they were in the spring. While we believe these new restrictions will help, we won’t get past this crisis unless our residents wear their masks and practice social distancing. No more excuses about COVID-19 fatigue: the virus never gets tired, and neither should our residents and businesses when it comes to keeping this city safe.”

The Covid testing was from 11:00 A.m to 4:00 P.m Wednesday.
