WILMINGTON, DE (STL.News) Governor John Carney on Thursday formally extended the Public Health Emergency order another 30 days to allow the State of Delaware and medical providers to continue COVID-19 vaccination and testing programs, and issued the following statement:
“There’s no better way to prevent the spread of COVID-19, and keep all Delaware children in their classrooms for in-person learning, than to get vaccinated,” said Governor Carney. “These vaccines are safe and extremely protective against COVID-19 infection and serious illness. I encourage all Delawareans to get your shot and help us finally put an end to this pandemic. Visit de.gov/getmyvaccine to find a free vaccine provider in your community.”
Under Delaware law, Public Health Emergency declarations must be renewed every 30 days.
