Delaware indoor mask mandate goes into effect on Tuesday
DOVER - Democratic Gov. John Carney is ordering Delawareans to wear masks in indoor business settings and extending a mask requirement for schools and child care facilities.
Carney on Monday signed a revision to a previously issued State of Emergency declaration that will require Delawareans to wear masks in grocery stores, convenience stores, gyms, restaurants, malls and other indoor settings.
The mandate takes effect at 8 a.m. Tuesday.
Carney also said that indoor mask requirements in K-12 public and private schools and child care facilities will be extended.
The school mask requirement had been set to expire in early February.
