Governor Carney Formally Extends Public Health Emergency

WILMINGTON, Del. – Governor John Carney on Friday 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: 

“We’ve made a lot of progress in getting folks vaccinated, but we still have a lot of work to do,” said Governor Carney. “With colder weather and more indoor gatherings, we are seeing an increase in COVID-19 cases. Children ages five and older are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine, and we need to get more of our younger Delawareans vaccinated. If you’re eligible for your booster, don’t wait to make your appointment. 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.
