Pop-up community COVID-19 testing sites for May 3 to 8

  • 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.

“The most important thing we can all do to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is to get vaccinated,” said Carney. “Check your local pharmacy for an appointment. Talk to your doctor, or look for vaccination clinics in your area. And ask your friends if they’ve been vaccinated. That’s how we’ll beat this virus.”

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