Released: March 8, 2021
Delaware County and AMI Expeditionary Healthcare (AMI) will be hosting a long-term drive-thru COVID-19 testing site beginning on Tuesday, March 9, and running through Friday, April 30 [3/29: Closing date extended from the original April 3 date]. Delaware County is the first of five counties selected to host a long-term COVID-19 testing site in partnership with AMI Expeditionary Healthcare (AMI).
The drive-thru testing clinic will be operational Tuesdays through Saturdays between the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the U.S. Army Reserve in Upland. Up to 450 patients will be able to be tested per day using the mid-nasal passage swab PCR test.
Testing is on a first-come, first-serve basis, and is free of charge. Testing is also open to individuals who are not county residents. Patients must be ages three and older and are not required to show symptoms of COVID-19 in order to be tested. No appointment is necessary. Patients are encouraged to bring a photo-ID or insurance card. Registration will be completed on-site. The turnaround time for testing results is two to seven days after testing.
Individuals who suspect they are positive or believe they have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 should self-quarantine while they await test results. Individuals who live with other people should self-quarantine in a private room and use a private bathroom if possible. Others living in the home with the individual awaiting test results should also stay at home. Individuals who test positive will receive a phone call from AMI while individuals who test negative will receive a secured-PDF emailed to them from AMI.
