Gov. Carney removes additional restrictions at Sussex Co. bars

WILMINGTON, Del. – Governor John Carney announced on Thursday that he has issued a revision to the omnibus State of Emergency order, removing additional restrictions at bars in Delaware beach communities.

On June 30th, Carney imposed the additional restrictions in eastern Sussex County establishments after a significant increase in COVID-19 cases in beach communities. We’re told the additional restrictions are being eased due to the end of the busy summer season, but social distancing guidelines, capacity limits, and other COVID-19 restrictions still apply.

This revision applies to food and drink establishments in Lewes, Rehoboth Beach, Dewey Beach, Long Neck, Bethany Beach, South Bethany, Fenwick Island, West Fenwick Island, Ocean View, and/or the following zip codes: 19966 east of Rt. 24 and Rt. 5; 19945 east of Rt. 17; 19975 east of the intersection of Rts. 20 and 54, and the entirety of 19944, 19967, 19970, 19930, 19971, and 19958.
