Stating that COVID-19 still poses a seious threat to Delawareans, Governor John Carney on Saturday formally extended the State of Emergency declaration in place to limit the spread of the disease.

Under Delaware law, the State of Emergency declarations must be renewed every 30 days, and the most recent executive order would have expired at midnight tonight.

The third extension of the declaration allows the protections, allowances, and guidance in each of the modifications in the State of Emergency to continue to exist.
