The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don't feel unwell.
Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment. Around 1 out of every 6 people who get COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develops difficulty breathing. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness.
People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention.

How do I know if I'm eligible to receive Unemployment Insurance in the State of Delaware?
There are certain wage requirements based on the amount of money that you were paid while you were employed. The amount of money you were paid during your base period (the first four of last five completed calendar quarters) determines your "weekly benefit amount (WBA)". In addition, you must be unemployed through no fault of your own, able to work, available for work, looking for work and willing to accept a job for which you are qualified.
How often do I file claims and when must I file claims in Delaware?
You must file a Weekly Pay Authorization or call "TeleBenefits" every week. Be sure to keep your records for unemployment insurance eligibility requirements on a weekly basis since the Weekly Pay Authorization or "TeleBenefits" will require you to answer specific questions about each compensable week that you claim benefits. A "compensable week" for unemployment benefits runs from Sunday through Saturday. It is your responsibility to return your Weekly Pay Authorization or to call "TeleBenefits" each week. Failure to return your Weekly Pay Authorization or to call "TeleBenefits" timely will cause a delay in benefits and may result in denial of benefits.
If you have selected to claim benefits by using the Weekly Pay Authorization option and do not get a new Weekly Pay Authorization covering the weekly claim period (compensable week) in the mail within one week of the Sunday date you mailed your last Weekly Pay Authorization, it is your responsibility to report to or call your local unemployment insurance office on the next working day in order for your Weekly Pay Authorization to be received on time. Backdated claims may not be accepted.
Here's an example: You have a Weekly Pay Authorization that covers the week ending June 19, 2010. This Weekly Pay Authorization should be completed by you on Sunday, June 20, 2010. You should get a new Weekly Pay Authorization in the mail that covers the week ending June 26, 2010 with your check for June 19, 2010 by Saturday, June 26, 2010.
If you don't get the new Weekly Pay Authorization on or before that day, you should call the UI information hotline (761-6576 in New Castle County and 1-800-794-3032 in Kent and Sussex counties)
The weekly benefit amount (WBA) is based on the amount that you were paid during the base period. The base period is the first four of the last five calendar quarters completed as of the Sunday before you file your first claim for benefits.
Your weekly benefit amount will be 1/46th of your two highest calendar quarters in the base period. If you worked full-time during the four quarters, your WBA will be a little more than half your gross weekly wage up to the maximum weekly benefit amount in effect at the time.
