Coronavirus emergency extended, state announces two more deaths


@VALUEZTV AM EDITION


Jeanne Kuang,


Gov. John Carney has formally extended Delaware's state of emergency over the coronavirus pandemic through the end of June. 


The emergency was first declared mid-March and must be extended every 30 days. 


The emergency order includes requirements for residents to wear face masks in public and restrictions on business operations to limit spread of the virus.

The state has for the past two weeks been lifting some of Carney's original restrictions — reopening beaches, short-term rentals, retail businesses and dine-in services at restaurants with limited capacity.


Many restaurants and businesses were allowed to reopen June 1, but it didn't trigger the economic reawakening the state had hoped for, as many stores remained closed over fears of the coronavirus and looting in Wilmington and Dover after police brutality protests.

Churches this weekend were also allowed to resume services, with many religious leaders saying they would implement social distancing rules. 


As of Friday evening, the state has recorded 9,845 coronavirus cases and two

additional deaths, bringing the state's death toll to 390. 


The next round of business reopenings begins June 15

Businesses that were allowed to reopen this week will be able to expand their occupancy from 30 to 60 percent of their designated fire code occupancy, the governor said at a press briefing.

This mostly applies to restaurants, retail, convention centers and arts organizations.


Gyms, however, will remain at 30% occupancy. 


Indoor gatherings of up to 50 people will also be allowed, and child care centers will also be open. The state is recommending parents keep their children home, if possible.
