Pop-up COVID-19 test sites will be set up at locations throughout Sussex County this week along with Curative trailer sites, officials said.
“We are seeing an increase in positive COVID-19 cases here in Delaware and across the country,” said Gov. John Carney in a press release. “We are less than two weeks away from Thanksgiving. It’s important you reconsider hosting in-person gatherings with people outside your immediate household. It’s also critical we continue to practice the basic public health measures that we know work to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Avoid gatherings with those outside your household. Keep wearing a mask in public. Wash or sanitize your hands frequently. Please consider getting a free test – whether you have symptoms or not. Testing for COVID-19 is the best way to track the spread of this virus and contain potential outbreaks.”
The Delaware Emergency Management Agency has coordinated community sites this week in addition to permanent testing sites at Walgreens, and at various hospitals and healthcare locations. Delawareans can view a full list of COVID-19 testing locations and reserve a spot at de.gov/gettested.
