Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Resources for Nurses and Health Care Providers

The Delaware Nurses Association (DNA) extends our deepest appreciation and gratitude to our nursing and health care provider community here in Delaware. As you would expect, nurses have been on the front lines of this global pandemic. We have heard stories about nurses responding with compassion, generosity and expertise. We have heard of nurses in Delaware that have quickly responded to dying patients being treated or ruled-out for COVID-19, placed themselves at risk to care for our community, quarantined themselves from their families and loved ones to limit exposure, and signed up to complete drive-thru testing or be reassigned from their primary duties to help with this pandemic. These stories are humbling and inspiring, it is clear that the World Health Organization (WHO) designated 2020 as the Year of the Nurse and Midwife with good reason. Please know that DNA supports you and is grateful for your selfless contributions during these uncertain and concerning times.
