County expands testing with walk-up sites in Wilmington
With data indicating significantly higher rates of infection in underserved communities, New Castle County launched a series of walk-up only testing sites this week, in addition to the drive up sites the County has hosted throughout the month of June. The sites in Wilmington give those without access to private transportation a chance to get tested for the novel coronavirus without also risking possible exposure or transmission by utilizing public transit to reach a testing site. New Castle County will continue efforts to reach vulnerable populations with its testing effort throughout the Summer. To register for testing at one of the county's sites, CLICK HERE .
