Action News coverage of the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak

New Castle County, in partnership with the State of Delaware and the Delaware Emergency Management Agency, announced a second round of free COVID-19 testing sites for Wilmington, Middletown, New Castle, and Newark. 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. Test locations were selected with input from a number of sources including doctors, epidemiologists, non-profits, faith based and community leaders.

"We received great feedback from the community on the operation so far," County Executive Meyer said. "We have been able to collect more than 2,000 samples in just one week of testing, and we are looking forward to expanding our research to other areas of New Castle County to help defeat COVID-19."

The tests, which were introduced to state public health officials by County Executive Meyer, are self-administered oral swabs, 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 in 24-48 hours via email.
