New COVID-19 Testing Site Opens in Yeadon Amid Positive Case Rise


A new COVID-19 test site opened Friday, June 10, in Yeadon to make sure everyone has equal access to testing during a recent surge in positive cases, reports 6abc.

“(It) will provide free walk-up and drive-through COVID-19 rapid testing to hundreds of Delaware County residents to address the growing need for testing to slow the virus’ spread amid the current BA.2 surge,” officials said in a statement.

The test site is located in the parking lot of the Delaware County Wellness Center in Yeadon. It will be open Monday through Wednesday, and Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. It will also be open Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Walk-up and drive-through testing will start at 8:30 a.m.

This new COVID-19 testing site is being operated in partnership with Personic Health Care, a local Springfield-based health provider, at no cost to the county.

It is part of a broader effort by the county to address health disparities exacerbated by the pandemic, according to a county press release.

The operation of the new site also highlights the importance of expanding access through partnerships between the Delaware County Health Department and local healthcare providers at a time when the need for testing has dramatically increased.
