  • 1 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 were proud to put the ‘Vax Machine’ out on the road this week to reach communities across the state. And we are working hard to distribute the vaccine in a way that’s fast and fair.” said Carney. “In the meantime, we need to keep following the basic health precautions. Get tested, wear a mask, wash your hands and practice social distancing, even if you have been vaccinated.”

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