Delaware County will be offering drive-thru and walk-up COVID-19 testing for residents on August 11, 12 and 13 in Lansdowne.
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.
