New Castle County Executive Meyer to parents: “Add COVID testing back to school list”

New Castle, DE – With students at five school districts returning to school later this month, New Castle County Executive Matt Meyer has announced a ramped-up testing scheduling to make it easy for students in New Castle County to get tested before they return to school. The testing locations include schools from Appoquinimink, Christina, Colonial, Red Clay, and New Castle County Vo-Tech School Districts. While all returning students are encouraged to get tested, the sites are open to the public.

 

Testing is also available at Walgreens, state service centers and numerous other medical providers. To register for testing, visit Delaware.curativeinc.com. 

 

“Ongoing testing and rigorous monitoring for COVID-19 is a necessary element of any safe return to school buildings,” said County Executive Meyer. “It starts with making sure your children get tested before returning to school, protecting our friends and our community. Every parent should add this COVID-19 testing to their back to school lists.”

 

The tests are provided by Curative, and are self-administered oral swabs. Results have been typically available within 72 hours. Additional sites will be added for the week of October 12th.
