Bayhealth expands coronavirus testing

Delaware News Desk
Smyrna/Clayton Sun-Times

As the coronavirus continues to spread nationally and locally, Bayhealth has expanded dates, times and locations of drive-thru testing.

People with symptoms such as fever, cough or shortness of breath should call the Coronavirus Management Team triage line at 310-8477 for a screening. The triage line is open from 8:15 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. The triage line is staffed by physicians, nurses and advanced practice providers.

Callers meeting screening criteria for COVID-19 will be scheduled for one of the offsite drive-thru testing locations. A second testing location has been added and testing has been expanded to five days a week. Drive-thru testing will take place in Kent County at Dover Downs, and in Sussex County at the Nemours Building on the Bayhealth Sussex Campus.

It is strongly recommended that patients do not go to a doctor’s office or emergency department without calling first, since many can isolate at home without being evaluated in person. As always, those experiencing a medical emergency should call 911.
