DelCo Offer Free At-Home COVID-19 Test Kits in Dec.

Although COVID-19 positivity rates and hospitalizations are down significantly versus the past two holiday seasons, COVID has not gone away completely, and Delaware County residents continue to test positive for the virus.

To help keep residents safe this holiday season, the Delaware County Health Department is giving out free COVID-19 at-home test kits to Delaware County residents beginning in December. 

The at-home COVID-19 test kits will be available for pick-up (limit 2 per person) at the Delaware County Wellness Centers at 125 Chester Ave., Yeadon, and 151 W. 5th St., Chester, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., on Dec. 2, Dec. 9., and Dec 16.  Residents can pick up their test kits at their convenience at either Wellness Center. No registration is required, and parking is free.

If you were exposed to someone with COVID-19, the CDC recommends that you wait at least 5 days until after your exposure to receive reliable results from a test. If you test negative, consider testing again in 1 to 2 days after your initial test. Residents experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms are advised to test themselves immediately.
