Delaware Restaurants, Bars Forced Closed at 8PM Tonight

Delaware Governor John Carney has issued an emergency declaration, which will force restaurants, taverns and bars to close to the general public, only allowing for take-out and delivery service.

Governor Carney also signed legislation that will ban public gatherings of 50 or more people, which is consistent with the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control.

Governor Carney spoke on the order saying “These restrictions will hit Delaware’s restaurants and bars especially hard.” He continued “Delawareans should continue to support these businesses, and their workers, by ordering take-out or delivery.”
