Starting today (3/23/20) Delaware health systems will operate standing health facility test sites. Health care staff will test individuals who are showing coronavirus symptoms and who have been evaluated by a medical provider. Tests will be administered at no cost to the patient. A physician order or prescription is required. If you are showing symptoms and you do not have access to a health care provider, you can call the Department of Public Health Call Center at 1-866-408-1899 , or call centers run by health care systems. Medical personnel will determine if you meet the criteria for testing and provide documentation that will give you access to testing at a standing health facility test site.

- New Castle County: ChristianaCare will operate two testing sites, one in Newark, one in Wilmington; Saint Francis Healthcare will operate one site in Wilmington.
- Kent County: Bayhealth will operate one testing site in Dover.
- Sussex County: Beebe Healthcare will operate two testing sites, one in Millsboro and one in Frankford; Nanticoke will operate one testing site in Seaford.
