TSD: Delaware’s best take on events, community and local life

This driver allowed us to take his picture as he collected his saliva sample for the free Covid-19 testing

Free COVID-19 testing is available at multiple locations again this week in New Castle County. You do not need to have symptoms to receive the test.

Testing sites will be available in Wilmington, Hockessin, New Castle, Claymont and Newark. (See locations and times below.)

The tests, which were introduced to state public health officials by County Executive Matt Meyer, are self-administered oral swabs, provided by Curative. Collecting a saliva sample takes all of about 2 minutes.

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. Last week 3,000 residents in New Castle were tested.

 

Resource fair at Frawley Stadium

The County will also be adding a resource fair to sites that have the size to accommodate the additional services. Those sites are Howard High School (Mon., 6.15), Frawley Stadium (Fri., 6.19), Seeds of Greatness Ministries (Sat. 6.20), and Frawley Stadium (Fri., 6.26).

Additional resources include the Food Bank of Delaware, Goodwill of Delaware and United Way of Delaware County, and 211.org.

 

East test

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 people are pre-registered, and test results arrive within 72 hours via email.

Free Covid-19 testing was available at Baltz Elementary School last week

To pre-register for any of the testing sites in Delaware, guests can visit https://delaware.curativeinc.com/welcome. While registration is not mandatory, it will save you time in line.
