Suspect Coronavirus?READ PRIOR TO ER VISIT
Before You Go to the Emergency Department Here’s What to Do!
If you are experiencing symptoms of fever, cough or shortness of breath, call your health care provider or the Delaware Division of Public Health (DPH) 1-866-408-1899 to discuss whether you should be tested for coronavirus. Importantly, coronavirus testing is NOT recommended if you have no symptoms.
There is no need to rush to the Emergency Room, unless you are having significant difficulty breathing. Delaware’s hospitals are prepared for coronavirus, but it’s important to preserve resources for those that truly need them and avoid unnecessarily exposing vulnerable people to the virus. For more information, visit de.gov/coronavirus or call the DPH Information Line at 1-866-408-1899.
