Permanent and Pop-Up Testing Locations


Permanent testing sites are fixed locations to expand testing opportunities and provide more testing locations across the state.
They are state-affiliated testing sites. The type of test (oral/saliva or shallow/deep nasal) varies by location.


Pop-up testing sites are drive-thru, walk-up, and Curative trailer locations, and change regularly.
These are primarily Curative tests (saliva-based).

Types of tests

SHALLOW NASAL TEST

(Just inside the nose.) There are tests available for K-12 students, teachers, staff. The State of Delaware partnered with school districts and charters to provide testing services to all school staff members to support a safe educational environment.

Learn More

DEEP NASAL TEST

(Used by hospital systems only.) This test is administered by health care providers, using what looks like a long stick with a soft brush at the end. Because the swab must go very far back to collect the cells and fluid in the passageway, the test can feel uncomfortable.

SALIVA TEST

Testing Results

Depending on the type of test, results could take anywhere from minutes to days.


If you test postive, know what protective steps to take to prevent others from getting sick.

Guidance


If you test negative, you probably were not infected at the time your sample was collected. The result only means that you did not have COVID-19 at the time of testing. Continue to take steps to protect yourself from getting the virus including consistently wearing a face covering when in public or around people who don’t live with you, and social distancing.
