In addition to the weekly testing sites in Wilmington, A third week of free COVID-19 testing sites have been announced by New Castle County. The sites, along with others in Kent and Sussex Counties, will help reach Governor John Carney’s goal of testing 80,000 Delawareans per month for the novel coronavirus.
The County will also be adding a resource fair to Frawley Stadium and Howard High School. Additional resources include the Food Bank of Delaware, Goodwill of Delaware and Delaware County, United Way, 211, and more.
The tests, which were introduced to state public health officials by County Executive Meyer, are self-administered oral swabs (nothing up your nose), provided by Curative. Participants swab the inside of their mouth, drop the swab into the tube, and drop off the package on their way out of the parking lot. The whole process takes less than 10 minutes and even less if subjects are pre-registered. Participants do not need to have symptoms to receive the test.
Test results are expected back to participants within 72 hours via email.
