For COVID-19 safety, all visitors to ChristianaCare facilities and services are required to wear masks. This includes visitors who are vaccinated. Please read our visitor guidelines before arrival.
Masks required at outpatient locations; visitors and support persons limited
All visitors at outpatient locations must be masked in alignment with the masking guidelines on our visitation policy page here. Patients at ChristianaCare’s outpatient services are advised to come to their appointments alone unless a support person is absolutely needed. If a support person is needed, such as a parent, guardian or spokesperson, we highly encourage that the support person be vaccinated. Outpatient practices are not requiring vaccination or a negative COVID test for visitors at this time.
All hospital visitors required to be vaccinated or have a negative COVID-19 test.
Inpatients in our Christiana, Wilmington and Union hospitals may have one visitor daily between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. The visitor must be 16 or older.
Patients having outpatient surgery may have one support person accompany them. Support persons must be 16 or older.
All visitors and surgical support people must show proof of vaccination OR a negative COVID-19 test within the prior 72 hours.

The Magnet® designation for nursing excellence from the American Nurses Credentialing Center is the pre-eminent recognition for hospital systems in the United States. Only 8 percent of the nation’s hospitals hold the prestigious Magnet designation. ChristianaCare was first in Delaware to achieve Magnet status in 2010, and is first in the state to be a three-time designee, demonstrating sustained excellence in nursing practice and adherence to national standards.
