Pop-up community COVID-19 testing sites for Feb. 1 to 6

Carney: 'Testing is not a replacement for basic prevention'

  • 2 min to read

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.

“We’ve vaccinated more than 92,000 Delawareans, and we’re working hard to expand access to as many Delawareans as possible,” said Carney. “But we cannot forget the basic public health precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Wear a mask, wash your hands, keep your distance, and get tested to know your COVID-19 status. ”

Delawareans are encouraged to check the Delaware Department of Health & Social Services’ social media accounts for scheduling updates due to inclement weather.
