Preventing, treating and recovering from COVID-19.

About COVID-19

  • If you’re sick, assume it’s COVID-19, and stay home except to get a COVID-19 test. Do not go to the emergency room for a COVID test. Find test availability here.
  • Most people with COVID-19 have mild illness and can recover at home without medical care. Seek medical attention immediately if:
    • You are severely dizzy or lightheaded.
    • You are confused or can’t think clearly.
    • Your face and lips have a blue color.
    • You pass out (lose consciousness) or are very hard to wake up.
  • If you have COVID-19, isolate yourself to avoid spreading the virus to others. Monitor and treat your symptoms at home and only contact your health care provider if your condition worsens.

About ChristianaCare’s Virtual COVID-19 Recovery Clinic

The ChristianaCare Center for Virtual Health offers an online clinic for patients with Post-Acute Sequelae of COVID-19, also known as long COVID, who have debilitating symptoms at least eight weeks after initial onset of COVID-19.

The multidisciplinary clinic is comprised of a primary care physician, pharmacist, cardiologist, pulmonologist, sports medicine physician, neurologist, endocrinologist and psychologist.

There are two ways to refer to this practice:

  1. If a patient has a primary care clinician or specialist who is at ChristianaCare, they can directly place referral in the electronic health record.
  2. An individual or the individual’s clinician (if outside of ChristianaCare) can call 302-428-2400, option 5 and provide demographic information along with dates of COVID-19 infection.

Once referred, the clinic’s primary care physician will conduct a virtual visit with the patient to perform a standardized screening of the patient’s symptoms and review health history and evaluations to date.

The primary care physician and clinic team then will develop a customized, personalized patient plan. A nurse will follow up with the patient to implement the plan.

Patients are monitored via biometric devices as needed and stay connected to the clinical team via a secure texting platform. Virtual group therapy is offered to every patient.
