Dewey Beach cancels fireworks
Dewey Beach canceled its fireworks display

Dewey Beach has canceled its fireworks display planned for Sunday night.

“Governor Carney has ordered us to cancel the 4th of July fireworks,” businessman Alex Pires posted on his Facebook page about 6 p.m.

The announcement follows Gov. John Carney asking bars to close Friday for the weekend to avoid the spread of coronavirus.

State health officials are worried about the rise in Delaware beach cases because so many people are not wearing masks or following social distancing guidelines when they go there.

Pires, who owns Highway One and was going to fund the fireworks, made his surprising post about an hour after a press release from the town urged everyone attending the fireworks to wear masks and observe social distancing when they were around someone who was not family.
