ChristianaCare

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.

Community Health

Community Health Workers

A Community Health Worker (CHW) serves as a frontline liaison, guiding individuals and families through the health, social and community services systems to foster health and well-being. As a trusted member of the community, the CHW is sensitive to the demographics and experiences of community members and provides culturally and linguistically competent and appropriate services. CHWs have the skills and capacity to address the social determinants of health to achieve better health outcomes and health equity for the populations and communities served.

Community Health Workers do things that nurses, doctors, and social workers do not. They sit with patients on the front porch and talk about the struggles of daily life: the grief of losing children to violence; the embarrassment of not being able to pay bills; the confusion of coordinating complex medical care. CHWs provide both emotional and instrumental support. They can go with patients to community centers and smoking cessation classes, read through insurance forms, or exercise together at the local gym.
