Bayhealth Meets Community Need For Coronavirus Testing
Bayhealth is working in collaboration with the Division of Public Health and area health systems to provide testing for patients with symptoms of COVID-19.
As of April 7, Bayhealth’s Coronavirus Management Team (CMT) has received 3,476 calls and tested 1,014 community members. The CMT hotline is staffed by physicians, nurses and advanced practice providers. Patients who meet screening criteria for COVID-19 testing will be referred to one of our off-site drive-thru testing sites.
Patients experiencing symptoms such as fever, cough or shortness of breath may call 302-310-8477 or email Coronavirus@Bayhealth.org. The phone line is open Monday – Friday from 8:15 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday – Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
It is strongly recommended that you do not go to your doctor’s office or emergency department without calling first, since many can isolate at home without being evaluated in person. As always, if you are experiencing a medical emergency, call 911.
