Pop-up COVID-19 test sites will be held this week across the state as officials seek to curb the recent outbreak of cases.
“Testing for COVID-19 is the best way to track the spread of the virus and respond to potential outbreaks,” said Gov. John Carney in a press release. “Whether or not you have symptoms, we encourage you to get tested for COVID-19 at a site near you, and to continue to follow basic health precautions so we can slow the spread. Keep wearing your masks in public. Wash or sanitize your hands frequently. Keep your distance and avoid gatherings with those outside of your household. Stay home if you’re sick.”
The Delaware Emergency Management Agency has coordinated 15 community sites this week in addition to sites at Walgreens and at various hospitals and healthcare locations.
Testing locations include pop-up and Curative trailer sites. Delawareans can view a full list of COVID-19 testing locations and reserve a spot at de.gov/gettested.
“Since May, we have tested over 300,000 people through community sites,” said A.J. Schall, DEMA director. “With the use of both pop-up and static sites, we continue to refine our testing plan. New trailers were recently added to ensure that there is convenient testing for those who need it, when they need it.”
