HIV Testing Expands at CAMP Rehoboth
CAMPsafe is excited to announce that it has increased availability for HIV testing at CAMP Rehoboth Community Center, 37 Baltimore Avenue, Rehoboth Beach. Testing will now be available daily at the CAMP Rehoboth office. The expansion is made possible by the availability of newly-certified testers—E.J. Kenyon, Joe Vescio, and Sharon Morgan—who have recently completed training offered by the Delaware Division of Public Health.
Additionally, Alan Spiegelman, who for the past several years has tested Mondays from 12:00 to 4:00 p.m., has expanded to Tuesdays during the same hours. Rounding out the week, Vescio and Kenyon will test on Wednesdays and Thursdays, from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m., respectively, and Morgan will test on Friday mornings, 9:00 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Testing is also widely available throughout western Sussex County at a variety of locations, including ACE Peer Resource Center in Georgetown, Laurel State Service Center, ACE Peer Resource Center in Seaford, and AMF (Addictions Medical Facility) in Seaford. Check the site at camprehoboth.com/health/hiv-testing for all hours and availability.
HIV testing is free of charge, and results are given in 15 minutes. The tests are administered via a finger stick. To get accurate results, it’s recommended that test-takers wait at least one to three months between potential exposure and the day of the test.
Testers cannot diagnose or treat any symptoms. If you are experiencing symptoms as a result of a sexual encounter, please see your primary care physician or visit a local sexual health clinic. If you are concerned that you have been exposed to HIV in the last 72 hours, please contact your primary care physician immediately or visit your local Emergency Department. ▼
