Gov. Carney Revises, Extends Public Health Emergency Order
Delaware’s Public Health Emergency Order was revised and extended for 30 days Thursday by Governor John Carney.
State law requires that a public health emergency declaration be extended every 30 days. According to Carney’s office, the action allows the State of Delaware and medical providers to continue COVID-19 vaccination and testing programs and allows staffing flexibility at hospitals and long-term care facilities.
The Department of Health and Social Services is also able to maintain Delaware’s eligibility for low-income people to continue to receive enhanced federal food benefits.
