Governor Carney announced a coordinated
to ensure individuals with symptoms consistent with coronavirus have access to safe and efficient testing in Delaware. Tests will be administered at no cost to the patients.
The plan is a collaborative effort between the Division of Public Health (DPH), Delaware Healthcare Association, and each of the health care systems.
Beginning Monday, March 23, Delaware health systems will operate standing health facility test sites, where health care staff will test individuals
who have been evaluated by a medical provider
have symptoms consistent with COVID-19
. If you have symptoms, call your health care provider or the DPH Coronavirus Call Center at 1-866-408-1899 first to discuss whether you should be tested for coronavirus.
A physician order or prescription is required.
