Hoboken's mayor appears to be the first in New Jersey to urge George Floyd protestors to self-isolate and get COVID-19 tests.

Mayor Ravi Bhalla on Sunday told anyone who attended Friday's protest along the waterfront to take precautions amid the coronavirus crisis.

"Friday’s demonstration was a powerful statement in the struggle for racial equality," the mayor said.

"At the same time, to keep our community safe, I ask any resident who attended the event to please schedule a COVID-19 test given the practical difficulties of social distancing at the demonstration."

City residents can make an appointment through Hoboken's partnership with Riverside Medical by calling 201-420-5621, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
