[ARCHIVED] Delaware County Announces COVID-19 Public Testing Site in Upper Darby

COVID-19 TESTING FLYER 8-4 to 8-6 Upper Darby (002)

UPDATE: Please be aware that due to the intense weather system associated with Tropical Storm Isaias, Delaware County is canceling the drive-thru and walk-up COVID-19 testing scheduled for Tuesday, August 4, in Upper Darby.

Testing is still tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, August 5 and Thursday, August 6.

Residents that have pre-registered for Tuesday, August 4, can re-register for testing for the following week in Lansdowne at www.chesco.org/4562/delco-testing.

For more information on testing and an interactive map with dozens of COVID-19 test sites in Delaware County, residents are asked to visit www.delcopa.gov/testing.

Residents 12 years of age and older are eligible to be tested. Critical and essential workforce—including first responders, healthcare system employees, grocery workers—and those at higher risk, including residents over the age of 65 and those with pre-existing health conditions, will be given priority.

Testing will be conducted by trained medical staff utilizing a nasal swab (PCR) test kit. Testing is free of charge for residents without health insurance. There are no out-of-pocket fees or co-pays for residents with private or public health insurance. Please bring your insurance card to the testing site. Upon arrival, residents will need to complete a registration form and a consent form.

Test results will take up to 5-7 business days and will be sent by mail. Residents who test positive will also receive a call from the Chester County Health Department.
