County Spotlights
County expands testing to all paid and volunteer firefighters
This week  County Executive Matt Meyer   announced a new partnership with LabCorp that will allow all firefighters in New Castle County to test for  COVID-19 . The County is also providing digital thermometer scanners for firefighters to monitor their health during the pandemic. Testing will be conducted on a bi-weekly basis for at least the next two months. Antibody testing is being explored and may be available at later testing sessions.

COVID-19 testing centers for those without symptoms open
Testing centers for those without COVID-19 symptoms, or who may be asymptomatic, are opening across New Castle County. Working with the State of Delaware, New Castle County has partnered with Curative to acquire enough COVID-19 tests to ensure anyone in Delaware who wants a test can get one. Delaware is aiming to process 80,000 each month as we work to fight the invisible enemy that is the novel coronavirus causing this pandemic.

County Executive joins Gold Star families on Memorial Day
New Castle County Executive Matt Meyer joined Gold Star families at War Memorial Plaza near the Delaware Memorial Bridge on Memorial Day to honor those who gave their life in defense of the country. The memorial was scheduled to have a celebration for an expansion but that has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Vice President Joe Biden also visited the memorial as he does annually, to drop off a wreath of white flowers to honor the fallen. To see video from the visit, CLICK HERE .
