Those who attend a Curative sight get this bag of testing equipment and information.

Delaware is planning eight days of pop-up coronavirus testing to help prepare for when many public schools begin hybrid learning later this month.

“Every parent should add this COVID-19 testing to their back to school lists,” New Castle County Executive Matt Meyer said in a statement. “It starts with making sure your children get tested before returning to school, protecting our friends and our community.

While many of these locations are aimed for students and school communities, members of the public can also register for testing at delaware.curativeinc.com.

 

The sites will use saliva-based oral swabs, and results are generally available 48-72 hours after Curative receives the test.

The schedule, according to the state and county:

Monday: 2:30-7:30 p.m. at Delcastle Technical and McKean high schools.

Tuesday: 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Hodgson Vo-Tech High School and Alfred Waters Middle school and 2-7 pm. at Caesar Rodney High School

Wednesday: 2-7 p.m. at Caesar Rodney and 2:30-7:30 p.m. at A. I. du Pont and Middletown high schools.

 

Thursday: 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Delaware Tech’s Owens Campus and 2:30-7:30 p.m. at Glasgow and Odessa high schools.

Friday: 2:30-7:30 p.m. at Kirk Middle and William Penn High schools.

Saturday: 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Conrad Schools of Science and William Penn.

Oct. 13: 2-7 p.m. at Milford High School.

Oct. 14: 2-7 p.m. at Sussex Central High School.

“These pop-up testing locations will help us safely bring back students and educators into the classroom,” Gov. John Carey said in a statement.
