LIST: COVID-19 testing sites in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- As the number of coronavirus cases grows, more health care systems and counties across the Delaware Valley are offering mobile COVID-19 testing.

There is currently a shortage of testing kits, so officials said they are only testing people who need it. Most testing sites require a doctor's referral, but not all. Make sure to read the requirements below for the testing site you are looking up.

DELAWARE



ChristianaCare - Newark/Wilmington
Saint Francis Healthcare - Wilmington
Bayhealth - Dover
Beebe Healthcare - Millsboro, Frankford
Nancticoke - Seaford

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 and have symptoms consistent with COVID-19. A physician order or prescription is required.
Standing health facility test sites will include:

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.
Symptomatic individuals who want or need a COVID-19 test and who have access to a health care provider will need to be evaluated by their provider. Teleconsultation is preferred unless the provider determines in-person consultation is needed. If COVID-19 symptoms are present, the patient can be referred to a standing health facility test site.

Individuals who do not have access to a health care provider can call the DPH Call Center, or call centers run by Christiana Care or Bayhealth, and medical personnel will determine if the caller meets criteria for testing. Medical personnel will provide the appropriate documentation that will give the caller access to testing at a standing health facility test site.

If you are experiencing symptoms of fever, cough, or shortness of breath, before leaving your home, 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. Importantly, testing is NOT recommended for those who do not have symptoms.

There is no need to go to the emergency room, unless you are having significant difficulty breathing. Delaware's hospitals are prepared for coronavirus, but it is important to preserve resources for those that truly need them and avoid unnecessarily exposing vulnerable people to the virus. If you have a medical emergency, call 911 and make sure to let the dispatcher know what symptoms you are experiencing.
