COVID-19 SCREENING, TESTING, & TREATMENT AT BEEBE

Beebe Healthcare is proud to offer screening for COVID-19, which involves a series of questions about your current health, and testing for COVID-19, which is a nasal or oral swab, at designation Beebe locations. In some cases, COVID-19 tests are sent out to other labs for processing; in other cases, they are processed at Beebe’s Clinical Lab at the Margaret H. Rollins Lewes Campus. Beebe is partnering with the Blood Bank of Delmarva on using donated plasma from those who had COVID-19 to help treat those who are currently hospitalized with COVID-19.

Beebe opened a COVID Positive Care Center in Georgetown so patients diagnosed with COVID-19 who do not need to be hospitalized can receive face-to-face care, including provider visits, lab, imaging, and more. Interpreter services are available.

Testing Framework

The State of Delaware significantly expanded its COVID-19 testing program. 

As part of the expanded program, the State provides partner organizations with testing supplies to more effectively reach Delawareans where they need and can easily access tests. Partners include Delaware’s hospital systems, primary care physicians, Federally Qualified Health Centers, pharmacies, long-term care facilities, and community partners. Learn more about Delaware’s Testing Framework.

Testing will be prioritized for:

  • Any symptomatic individual.
  • Anyone with known exposure to COVID-19.
  • All long-term care residents and staff.
  • Vulnerable Delaware populations, including elderly Delawareans and members of low-income communities.
  • Certain front-line essential workers.

 

Symptoms

Discuss with your doctor if you have elevated temperature, cough, difficulty with breathing, or muscle aches.

Things to know

Individuals who have symptoms should stay at home. Many individuals infected with COVID-19 recover by resting, drinking plenty of liquids and taking pain and fever-reducing medications. It’s important to be aware of your symptoms and take precautions. In some cases, illness can be severe and require hospitalization.

If you have a medical emergency, call 911 and make sure to let the dispatcher know which symptoms you are experiencing.

If you may have been exposed but don’t have symptoms

  • No need to go to the emergency room (ER); it’s important to preserve ER resources and avoid exposing vulnerable people to the virus.
  • Stay home and make sure to distance yourself from vulnerable populations.
  • Monitor your symptoms to see if anything changes.

What is the difference between “quarantine” and “isolation”?

Both quarantine and isolation help protect the public by preventing exposure to people who have or may have a contagious disease.

  • Quarantine: separates and restricts the movement of people who were exposed to a contagious disease to wait and see if they are infected and become sick.
  • Isolation: separates sick people with a contagious disease from people who are not sick.
