Gov. Carney activates National Guard to support Stockley Center

GEORGETOWN, Del. – Governor John Carney has activated the Delaware National Guard to serve on state duty status at the Stockley Center in Georgetown.

We’re told the Stockley Center is facing staff shortages due to a recent increase in COVID-19 community levels and industry-wide staffing shortages. The Stockley Center is a 50-bed Medicaid-certified Intermediate Care Facility for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities that provides both intermediate and skilled nursing care for individuals requiring a variety of complex supports and medical needs.

This order specifically authorizes members of the National Guard, who are certified nursing assistants, registered nurses, or other healthcare providers, to support the Stockley Center.

We’re told this order will remain in effect until further notice.
