New, Free COVID-19 Testing Site Opens in Delaware County
Harrisburg, PA – The Wolf Administration today announced the launch of a new, free COVID-19 testing site in Delaware County and highlighted the efforts taking place to support Pennsylvanians and community partners on COVID-19 testing.
“To be clear, the best way for Pennsylvanians to protect themselves and vulnerable populations and prevent hospitalization from COVID-19 is for eligible individuals to get vaccinated and boosted,” said Gov. Tom Wolf. “We know that COVID-19 tests are also an important tool to help prevent the spread of this contagious disease, especially as we enter cold and flu season and symptoms for cold, flu and COVID-19 may seem similar. My administration is collaborating with health systems, communities, school districts and the private sector to support their current needs and incentivize the public to get tested before engaging with the public.”
The drive-through testing site in Delaware County is located at the Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital address 600 S. Wycombe Ave., Yeadon, PA 19050. The testing location is located between St. Bernard’s Hall and Friendship Circle. All participants should enter on Wycombe Avenue.
