Agencies Encourage COVID-19 Testing
WILMINGTON, Del. – Governor John Carney, the Delaware Division of Public Health (DPH), and the Delaware Emergency Management Agency (DEMA), announced a substantial list of community testing sites this week. Testing locations include pop-up and Curative trailer sites.

“Testing for COVID-19 is the best way to track the spread of the virus and respond to potential outbreaks,” said Governor Carney. “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.”

DEMA has coordinated 15 community sites this week in addition to sites at Walgreens and at various hospitals and health care locations. Delawareans can view a full list of COVID-19 testing locations and reserve a spot at de.gov/gettested.
“Testing continues to be critical to us slowing the spread of COVID-19,” said Dr. Karyl Rattay, Director of the Delaware Division of Public Health. “We are grateful to our community partners for engaging in thoughtful conversations around the need for testing and providing feedback on the accessibility of locations.”
“Since May, we have tested over 300,000 people through community sites,” said A.J. Schall, Director of the Delaware Emergency Management Agency. “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.”
Delawareans are encouraged to check the Delaware Department of Health and Social Services’ social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) for testing location updates due to inclement weather.
