Carney continues State of Emergency

Gov. John Carney formally extended his State of Emergency declaration April 16 for another 30 days to confront community spread of COVID-19.

This is the 14th time he has extended the State of Emergency since the pandemic was declared in March 2020.

“We have fully opened our vaccine program so that any eligible Delawarean who wants a COVID-19 vaccine should be able to get one,” he said in a press release. “We are making progress by vaccinating thousands of Delawareans each day, and this order helps keep our vaccination and testing programs running at full speed. We still need to continue to do what works to fight community spread. Avoid large gatherings. Wear a mask. Keep your distance from others outside of your household. Get tested, especially if you traveled this spring. Stay vigilant.”
