Here’s how to find a Delaware pop-up testing site the week of Dec. 6

Testing in Delaware

With Delaware posting another record number of COVID-19 cases Thursday and worries that could mean critical cases overwhelm hospitals down the line, the state wants anyone and everyone to be tested.

“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,” Gov. John Carney said in a press release.

Thursday’s positive cases totaled 754.

Carney on Thursday also announced he was issuing another stay at home order, asked people to wear masks in their own home with others from outside who might be visiting, told schools to go to online learning after Dec. 14 and said sports competitions could not take place between Dec. 14 and Jan. 11 but practices could continue for winter sports. That deadline allowed time for football and other sports to finish their playoffs.

 

Testing is free at all sites. The type of testing differs at various sites, but most drive-thru and pop-ups use mouth swabs. Results generally come in about 48 hours.

This list of sites includes both state and New Castle County sites. It does not include the state’s permanent sites.

To reserve a spot, go to de.gov/gettested. If the slots are full and you want a test, go anyway. Every site stocks extra tests and few people have been turned away. In case of bad weather, check the Delaware Department of Health and Social Services’ social media accounts  for updates.
