Bayhealth opens screening hotline

DOVER, Del. – Bayhealth has opened a phone line for community members who may be concerned about potential coronavirus symptoms they may be experiencing.

People experiencing symptoms such as fever, cough, or shortness of breath can call 302-310-8477, Monday through Friday between 8:15 a.m. to 6 p.m. We’re told the line is staffed by physicians, nurses, and advance practice providers.

Callers meeting screening criteria for COVID-19 testing will be referred to one of Bayhealth’s off-site drive-thru testing sites.

It is strongly recommended that you do not go to your doctor’s office or emergency department without calling first, since many people can isolate at home without being evaluated in person.
