All visitors are required to wear masks.

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.

Ethics Consultation Service

ChristianaCare provides an ethics consultation service for you and your family. Our consultation team consists of doctors, nurses, clergy, legal/risk experts, and professional ethicists. If you are experiencing difficulties such as treatment disagreement with your doctors, confusion over what decision you should make for your family too sick to speak for themselves, and need for help and guidance on any moral and ethical questions or problems, please request an ethics consultation.

If you would like to arrange the consultation, your doctor and nurse can make the arrangements for you, or you can just call ChristianaCare Information Desk by calling 302-733-1000 and ask the operator that you want to speak with the ethics team available 24-hours-a-day.
