Governor Carney Announces this week’s COVID 19 Testing Sites

 

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.”

Delawareans are encouraged to check the Delaware Department of Health and Social Services’ social media accounts (Facebook [facebook.com], Twitter [twitter.com], and Instagram [instagram.com]) for testing location updates due to inclement weather.
