Delaware Implements 14 Day Quarantine for Out-of-State Visitors

Delaware Governor John Carney has issued a modification to his state of emergency declaration that requires out-of-state travelers to immediately self quarantine for 14 days.

Taking effect at 8 a.m. on Monday, March 30, the order applies to anyone who has entered Delaware in the last 14 days. It does not apply to travelers who are merely passing through Delaware.

Governor Carney said “Now’s not the time to visit Delaware. We’re facing a serious situation here that is getting worse.” He continued “Delawareans need to stay at home, and anyone from another state visiting Delaware should immediately self-quarantine for two weeks.”

The self-quarantine requirement doesn’t apply to public health, public safety or health care providers, or individuals assisting an essential business or providing an emergency service related to COVID-19.
