covid-19 DE

WILMINGTON, Del. – Governor John Carney announced on Friday that effective May 21st, the State of Delaware will lift its requirement that Delawareans and visitors must wear face coverings any time they are indoors with others outside their household.

Delawareans should follow masking guidance issued on Thursday by the CDC for all indoor and outdoor activities. This guidance advises that fully vaccinated people can stop wearing masks in most places indoors and outdoors, with exceptions, including on public transit, planes, in schools, health care facilities, and congregate settings such as prison facilities and homeless shelters.

Also on May 21st, Governor Carney will lift all remaining mask requirements outdoors.

Those who are not fully vaccinated, including children not yet eligible for a vaccine, should continue to wear masks when around others outside of their immediate household.
