Patient Notification on Covid-19

The health of our patients, visitors, employees and physicians is always our top priority at First State Orthopaedics. Due to the continuous spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we want you to know that we are taking additional measures to ensure that our community is safe.

The details of the visitor restriction policies for FSO locations include:

  • Patients with scheduled appointments should contact their provider or outpatient area if they are feeling any symptoms (including fever, cough, or shortness of breath) for guidance and self-isolation. These patients should not enter the facility without first contacting their provider.
  • If patients are required to enter these locations, they will be limited to one visitor or care partner for necessary care coordination or patient assistance. If a care partner isn’t necessary, we encourage that person to wait in their car.
  • If you are not feeling well or do not have to visit, please stay home for everyone’s protection.
  • If you are experiencing respiratory symptoms, please call ahead. It is strongly recommended that you not go directly to your doctor’s office or emergency department without calling first, since many can isolate at home without being evaluated in person.

For additional information, please call the Delaware Health and Social Services information line at 1-866-408-1899, TTY at 1-800-232-5460 or email dphcall@delaware.gov.
