Governor Carney Updates Omnibus COVID-19 Emergency Order

Latest modification updates gathering limits 

WILMINGTON, Del. – Governor John Carney on Friday signed the Seventh Modification to the Omnibus Emergency Order, increasing gathering limits for indoor events with restrictions in place to prevent spread of COVID-19. 

Under the latest order, ​the limit on gatherings at businesses and other indoor spaces ​is increased from the current limit of 10 people. The new limit is a maximum of 25 people or 50 percent of stated fire occupancy restrictions, whichever is less. Organizers may ​submit a plan to the Division of Public Health (DPH) to host larger events up to 150 people. Outdoor gatherings are limited to 50 people, or up to 250 with an approved plan from DPH. The limit for private indoor gatherings or events, such as dinner parties, house parties, and birthday parties, remains at 10 people.

Event organizers must email DPH at HSPContact@delaware.gov at least a week prior to the event ​for permission to host indoor gatherings over 25 people, up to 150 people, or outdoor gatherings over 50 people, up to 250 people. Businesses and other event hosts also must continue to follow state and local COVID-19 restrictions, including masking and social distancing requirements. Indoor gatherings with fewer than 25 people and outdoor gatherings with fewer than 50 people do not require a plan, but must follow all other applicable requirements.

The order also raises the group exercise class capacity to 15 people, excluding staff, with additional restrictions in place.

“We are making progress in our fight against COVID-19. Hospitalizations are down more than 50 percent from our winter peak, and Delaware providers have administered more than 164,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine,” said Governor Carney. “But let’s keep doing what works until we can get enough Delawareans vaccinated. Wear a mask. Avoid large gatherings where this virus can spread. Wash or sanitize your hands frequently. Stay vigilant.”

Also on Friday, Governor Carney extended the COVID-19 emergency order another 30 days to confront the spread of COVID-19 in the State of Delaware.

NEWS FROM FEMA: FEMA and Delaware Officials Opening COVID-19 Vaccination Center in Dover 

WILMINGTON, Del. – Governor John Carney on Tuesday shared the following news from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA):

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Health and Human Services (HHS), Delaware Emergency Management Agency (DEMA), Delaware Division of Public Health (DPH), and Dover International  Speedway (DIS) have partnered to open a drive-thru COVID-19 vaccination site for six days beginning Sunday, February 21, 2021.

FEMA will provide resources and federal staffing support, as well as operational support at this site.

“We’re committed to vaccinating as many Delawareans as possible, as quickly and equitably as possible,” said Delaware Governor John C. Carney.  “This will help us deliver critical second doses of a life-saving vaccine to thousands of Delawareans.  Thank you to FEMA, Dover International Speedway, and all of our partners in this important effort.”

“FEMA is grateful for the outpouring of support and hard work from our partners in Delaware and we are excited about the innovative ways we are working together to safely vaccinate Delaware residents,” said Janice Barlow, Acting Regional Administrator, FEMA Region 3. This vaccination site, the first of its kind in Region 3, plays a critical role in protecting Delawareans against a virus that is relentless and ever evolving – time is of the essence.

Recognizing that the COVID-19 pandemic is an unprecedented global emergency, FEMA sought early on to ensure existing partnerships with private sector and others, help facilitate this vaccine mission.

“Dover International Speedway is proud to host this vaccination site and is grateful to all the agencies that came together so quickly to make this possible for our community,” said Mike Tatoian, Dover International Speedway’s president. “Our central location and ability to host thousands of people and vehicles with efficiency has made the Speedway, as well as our dedicated staff, a critical ally for health officials and charities throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. From hosting monthly food donation events and offering tests to first-responders to this vaccination site, we will continue to help our community recover from the COVID-19 pandemic however possible.”

The State of Delaware requested federal assistance to establish a vaccination site that would be able to provide the second-dose of the COVID-19 vaccine to up to 3,000 Delawareans a day for six days.

These second-dose appointments will only be available for those who received a first-dose from the Division of Public Health at one of the following events:

  • Dover Division of Motor Vehicles on January 16th through January 18th
  • Salesianum School in Wilmington on January 18th
  • Delaware City Division of Motor Vehicles on January 22nd through 24th
  • Georgetown Division of Motor Vehicles on January 23rd and January 24th

Both the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines will be provided to those that have received their first dose at these locations.

“We are grateful for the opportunity to partner with DEMA, FEMA and the Dover International Speedway to provide second doses to those DPH vaccinated at our large DMV events in January,” said Delaware Division of Public Health Director Dr. Karyl Rattay.  “Organizing a multi-day event like this takes a significant amount of resources and we appreciate the work of not only our staff, but all involved to ensure that these Delawareans are able to be fully vaccinated.”

The second-dose appointments for the FEMA vaccination clinic will open on Wednesday at 11 a.m. at de.gov/fema. Appointments will be made with a simplified scheduling system created by Division of Public Health and not through the CDC VAMS system that some first-dose recipients may have used to make appointments for the Georgetown and Delaware City events in January. Those without internet access may call DPH at 1-833-643-1715 but should not call until after 11 a.m. Wednesday as no appointments will be available until then, but wait time may be lengthy based on call volume and online registration is urged.

To make an appointment for the Dover Speedway clinic, an individual will have to indicate the location and date of the DPH first dose event they attended from the list above. Individuals will have an option to create an appointment for someone else after they create their own, and will be able to have a single email tied to multiple appointments. Everyone who arrives to be vaccinated must have an appointment.

Vaccinations will occur between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. each day, scheduled in 15-minute increments. Initially, DPH will initially schedule appointments for the first five days (Feb. 20-24) and will open the sixth day as needed.

Visitors can access the vaccination site via Dover International Speedway’s Leipsic Road entrance.  To reduce waiting, those with appointments will be urged not to show up more than an hour early. Just in case, those arriving at the site need to ensure:

  • You enter the Speedway grounds via 1000 Leipsic Road, not the main entrance from Route 13.
  • Your vehicle has a full tank of gas.
  • You have personal identification (a driver’s licenses or photo ID).
  • Proof of first COVID-19 vaccination (vaccination card).
  • Confirmation of your appointment.
  • Snacks to enjoy while waiting in line.

Delaware Emergency Management Agency (DEMA) Director A.J. Schall said, “We are lucky to be able to leverage partnerships to provide the needed second doses next week.  The surge flexibility that FEMA offers allows other partners to continue with first doses and advanced planning. This event would not be possible without Dover International Speedway, Kent County EMS, St. Francis Hospital EMS, Delaware Department of Transportation (DELDOT), law enforcement, and FEMA.  Partnerships and flexibility will get us through this pandemic.”

FEMA will have socially distanced staff on site to ensure prompt service is available to all and that proper COVID-19 protocol is adhered to.

“FEMA remains committed to helping Americans during this time and we will continue to work with our partners to stop the spread of this disease,” said Region 3 Acting Administrator Barlow.

HOY: Curative abre la inscripción para eventos de aplicación de la segunda dosis de la vacuna contra el COVID-19

Eventos en cada condado planificados para los habitantes de Delaware que recibieron la primera dosis de la vacuna el 18 de enero o antes en eventos de vacunación patrocinados por el Estado

La inscripción empieza hoy a las 10:00 a. m. en el sitio web de Curative

WILMINGTON, Del. – El gobernador John Carney, la División de Salud Pública (DPH) y la Agencia de Manejo de Emergencias de Delaware (DEMA) anunciaron que la inscripción en eventos de Curative para la aplicación de la segunda dosis de la vacuna en los tres condados comenzará HOY, jueves, 11 de febrero, a las 10:00 a. m.

La inscripción estará disponible aquí:

Georgetown: https://curative.com/sites/25123

Dover: https://curative.com/sites/25081

Wilmington: https://curative.com/sites/25122

NOTA: Los eventos de segunda dosis de la semana que viene tendrán lugar del 15 al 19 de febrero en los campus de Delaware Technical Community College (DTCC) en Dover, Wilmington y Georgetown. Los eventos de DTCC están dirigidos a los trabajadores de Delaware elegibles para la Fase 1A y los habitantes de Delaware mayores de 65 años de edad que recibieron sus primeras dosis de la vacuna contra el COVID-19 en eventos de vacunación masiva patrocinados por el Estado. En total, se darán 3,800 citas para una segunda dosis. Las personas que no puedan demostrar que recibieron la primera vacuna antes del 18 de enero no podrán participar en los eventos de vacunación, por más que tengan una cita.

Los habitantes de Delaware que hayan recibido la primera vacuna el 18 de enero o antes en una farmacia o un proveedor de atención médica autorizados deben comunicarse con su proveedor o farmacia para programar una cita de segunda dosis antes de intentar inscribirse en un evento patrocinado por el Estado. El Estado de Delaware asignará segundas dosis de las vacunas a los proveedores autorizados lo antes posible para cumplir con el intervalo de 21 o 28 días entre dosis, según lo permita el suministro federal. Se prevé que habrá otros eventos de segunda dosis patrocinados por el Estado a partir del 20 de febrero para las personas que recibieron la primera dosis en eventos patrocinados por el Estado.

“Nuestro objetivo es vacunar a la mayor cantidad de habitantes de Delaware que sea posible, y de la manera más rápida y equitativa posible”, dijo el gobernador Carney. “Estos eventos de segunda dosis reducirán por un tiempo nuestra capacidad de ampliar el acceso a primeras dosis de la vacuna contra el COVID-19. Aun así, estamos logrando un importante avance en la vacunación de habitantes de Delaware mayores de 65 años y trabajadores de atención médica de primera línea. Esto ayudará a limitar la propagación del COVID-19 y el desarrollo de síntomas graves en nuestras poblaciones más vulnerables”.

Los habitantes de Delaware que hayan perdido su tarjeta de registro de vacunación pueden solicitar su registro de vacunación por correo electrónico a vaccine@delaware.gov (asunto: Lost Vaccine Card). Incluya el nombre completo y la fecha de nacimiento cuando solicite el comprobante de la primera dosis de la vacuna contra el COVID-19. ¿No tiene acceso al correo electrónico? Llame al 1-833-643-1715.
