Gov. John Carney, the Delaware Division of Public Health (DPH) and the Delaware Emergency Management Agency (DEMA) have announced the list of community testing sites throughout Delaware this week. Testing locations listed below include pop-up and Curative trailer sites.

DEMA 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.

“Testing helps us track the spread of COVID-19 and monitor for potential outbreaks, but it’s not an excuse to ignore the basic health precautions,” said Carney.

“Wear a mask. Do not gather with friends or family outside your household. We all know better by now, so let’s not let our guard down. COVID-19 can cause serious illness or worse — especially among our most vulnerable. We need everyone’s help to limit the spread this winter and protect lives. Stay vigilant."

Delawareans are being encouraged to check the Delaware Department of Health & Social Services’ social media accounts (FacebookTwitter and Instagram) for testing location updates due to inclement weather.
