Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)

Individuals with general questions about coronavirus can call 2-1-1 or text your ZIP code to 898-211 for deaf or hard of hearing. For those with specific health-related questions, email us at DPHCall@delaware.gov.

Contact your primary health care provider if you have concerns about symptoms, particularly those with fever and coughing or shortness of breath.

What you can do to mitigate the impact of COVID-19:

  • Wear a face covering in public
  • Stay at least 6 feet from others
  • Only dine (at home & at restaurants) with people who live with you
  • Keep Thanksgiving gatherings small – only have dinner for people who live in your house
  • Avoid indoor house parties – even outdoor ones if you’re not staying 6 ft apart and masked up!
  • Avoid spending time with people who don’t live with you (if you do, mask up, wash up, keep apart)
  • Wash or sanitize hands frequently
  • Don’t go to work if you are sick
  • Get tested for COVID-19 – you can, even those with no symptoms
  • Clean frequently used surfaces often
  • Add your phone to the COVID-19 fight – Download the COVID Alert DE App
  • Answer the call from our contact tracer – the phone number they call from is 302-446-4262, or your caller ID will say DE PUBLICHEALTH
