Released: August 18, 2020
Delaware County will be offering drive-thru and walk-up COVID-19 testing for residents on August 25, 26 and 27 in Aldan.
Testing will be conducted by trained medical staff utilizing a nasal swab (PCR) test kit.
Testing is available for residents 12 years of age and older who have COVID-19 symptoms, have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, or who may be symptomatic. Testing is open to all residents and individuals who work in Delaware County. 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 is available for both insured and uninsured residents. There are no out-of-pocket expenses or co-pays for those with health insurance. Please bring your insurance card to the testing site. A prescription from a doctor is not required. Upon arrival, residents will need to complete a registration form and a consent form. Residents are required to wear a mask/face covering at the test site.
Test results typically take up to 5-7 business days and will be sent by mail. Effective August 11, residents have the option of receiving test results faster through an online portal hosted by HNL Lab Medicine. Residents who elect to provide an email address will be able to create an online account on the MyHNLAccess portal at https://myhnlaccess.force.com/Patients/hnlloginpage where they can access their results. Residents who test positive will also receive a call from the Chester County Health Department.
