Delaware Healthcare Association Urges Delawareans to 
Continue to Stay Home
(DOVER, DE – April 30, 2020) Delaware Healthcare Association President & CEO Wayne A. Smith issued the following statement on the need for Delawareans to continue to follow State guidance to stay home during the COVID-19 pandemic:
“Many of Delaware’s hospitals have experienced a COVID-19-related surge in patients in recent days. The pandemic is by no means over,” said Wayne A. Smith, President and CEO of the Delaware Healthcare Association. “It remains critical to flatten the curve in order to ensure adequate hospital resources for all who need care. Governor Carney’s stay-at-home order to achieve this is based upon the best data and scientific thinking available. 
Delaware’s hospital and health care workers are working tirelessly around the clock to respond to COVID-19 in our state. The best ways to support our healthcare workers are by staying home, wearing face coverings in public, and practicing social distancing to keep yourselves and your neighbors safe and healthy.”
