Released: April 21, 2023
The Delaware County Health Department (DCHD) and Personic Healthcare are announcing the end of their COVID-19, influenza (flu) and Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) testing operation partnership at the Delaware County Wellness Center at Yeadon. On June 2, 2022, this partnership began providing free COVID-19 testing at the Delaware County Wellness Center parking lot in Yeadon. Starting on January 3rd, 2023, services at this location were expanded to include flu and RSV testing. The final day of testing services in Yeadon will be Saturday, April 29th, 2023.
Over the course of this partnership, DCHD and Personic Healthcare provided a valuable free resource to the people of Delaware County, helping to identify and contain the spread of COVID-19, flu and RSV. However, as the case counts for respiratory illnesses have decreased, so has the demand for these testing services. Depending on future public health needs, DCHD and Personic Healthcare may renew partnerships in the future.
"We are grateful for the opportunity to have worked alongside Personic Healthcare to provide testing services to our community," said Delaware County Health Department Director Melissa Lyon. "Their support and partnership have been instrumental in our efforts to mitigate the spread of viruses and keep our community healthy and safe.”
“We look forward to keep working with DCDH into the future for any other needs that Personic Healthcare can address,” said Farhad Hashmi, Personic Healthcare Chief Executive Officer.
