There is nothing I can say about the numbers this last week. I just feel sad and almost want to cry at the inexcusable loss and the problems people are going to face in the future. Many people may survive but a lot of them will have lifelong health problems. I just don't understand why people can't do what is right for them and others. Why do people take a stand on something so menial as wearing a mask and social distancing yet don't say a word about all the lives lost and changed forever. Is it so important to party or go to bars or church that they are willing to risk their lives or the lives of their loved ones. I guess so.

I lost 2 cousins on LI, older than I but he was relatively healthy and his sister had pneumonia in Nov. but was ok by year end. They died 17 days apart. She was a widow and the one that had to bury her was her brothers widow and family. The really sad part was they had to wait 10 days before they could get to bury him and then a 5 days later she was hospitalized and died 2 days later. They never had a chance to see either of them and say a proper goodby. From Hospital to funeral home to the ground.

I agree with you, nothing is a precious as your life, please wear a mask and avoid going our needlessly.

I'm so sorry for the loss of your family members, Nuts. You and Rothbear are so right! We have to be cautious and safe today so we have more tomorrows. While not being able to observe the holidays in the traditional ways we have in the past, keeping everyone healthy will mean we'll all be present the next time we can safely get together. I'd rather have a happy and joyful celebration when that day comes than to be mourning those who aren't among us!!

Governor Carney Announces Additional COVID-19 Restrictions to Confront Winter Surge

Most establishments limited to 30 percent capacity; larger retail limited to 20 percent to reduce crowds; 10 p.m. curfew instituted at restaurants and bars; additional enforcement measures announced; Stay-at-Home advisory in effect December 14-January 11

WILMINGTON, Del. – Governor John Carney on Thursday signed the fourth revision to the omnibus emergency order, announcing additional restrictions to confront the winter surge of COVID-19 hospitalizations in Delaware. Additional restrictions include:

Businesses above 100,000 square feet are limited to 20 percent of stated fire capacity.

All other businesses, including most retail stores and all restaurants, are limited to 30 percent of stated fire capacity.

Retail below 5,000 square feet, all Houses of Worship, and funeral services are limited to 40 percent of stated fire capacity.

A 10 p.m. curfew will be imposed at Delaware restaurants and bars. **Restaurants can deliver past 10 p.m.

Exercise classes at gyms are limited to 10 people and individuals who are not part of the same household must remain at least 13 feet apart during classes.

Indoor gatherings at businesses or indoor spaces open to the public must be limited to the lesser of 30 percent of the venue’s stated fire capacity, or 10 people.

Employees are excluded from business capacity restriction calculations.

All new restrictions will take effect at 8 a.m. on Monday, December 14. Governor Carney’s fourth revision also formally authorizes previously announced restrictions:

Stay-at-Home Advisory: Delawareans are strongly advised to stay at home and not to gather with anyone outside their household from December 14-January 11 to reduce the dangerous surge of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations.
Universal mask mandate: Delawareans and visitors must wear masks anytime they are indoors with anyone outside of their household.

“These additional restrictions are intended to protect Delaware’s hospital capacity and protect lives this winter,” said Governor Carney. “Health care workers are on the job around the clock, caring for the sick. We all need to follow their lead and do our part to protect others. Don’t gather with anyone outside of your household. Any interaction is riskier when community spread is at current levels. Wear a mask whenever you’re around someone outside your household – even if they’re family or friends. Wash or sanitize your hands frequently. COVID-19 can cause serious illness and worse, especially for our most vulnerable friends, family members, and neighbors. Please take this seriously.”

Governor Carney and the Delaware Division of Public Health (DPH) also on Thursday announced a zero-tolerance enforcement policy for businesses during the Stay-at-Home advisory. A first violation of COVID-19 restrictions will result in an immediate civil fine. A second violation will result in closure, until the establishment submits a reopening plan approved by DPH.

Restaurants will remain at 30 percent capacity, but must have signage prominently displayed on the table stating that parties must be from the same household. Restaurants also must share messaging on masking compliance. Governor Carney’s fourth revision caps mall food courts at 20 percent of stated fire capacity, or 100 people, whichever is smaller.

Governor Carney’s State of Emergency declaration carries the full force and effect of law. Delawareans and visitors also must follow local restrictions in place to limit community spread of COVID-19.

Anyone with a question about COVID-19, whether related to medical or social service needs, should call Delaware 2-1-1. Individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing can text their ZIP code to 898-211. Hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday; 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Report a business for COVID-19 non-compliance using this form.

The Division of Public Health will continue to update the public as more information becomes available. For the latest on Delaware’s response, go to de.gov/coronavirus.

I have three family members who have had it now, two neighbors, and at least twenty friends/acquaintances. My husband knows even more (co-workers). All lived, but some were hospitalized and it's unsure if they will make a full recovery. VERY strange after effects with this illness, just mind boggling.

I'm not surprised that the numbers are jumping after all the holiday gatherings and indoor parties I've heard about people attending. I had one cousin catch it because she insisted on throwing her ex's teen daughter a birthday party. She was never the most considerate or brightest bulb, but the blatant disregard for others is disturbing.

Wow, beachliz, that's a lot of people! This time around, it feels much closer, doesn't it? The next generation of our family is divided in caution - half are super cautious and I'm really impressed and proud of them. The other half seem to act as if nothing is different. One of them, in his late 20's and fit, is still dealing with odd after-effects 5 months later. This is nothing to play with.

I had a ranting e-mail from a friend the other night, complaining that the Governor was treating us like we're children and can't make good decisions on our own - even going there with "my rights, my freedoms". Yet also attached was a picture of her husband inside a restaurant, showing his meal, that was taken the night before. Her angst came from the fact that their grown children have both said they want to delay Christmas and take another look where things are in mid-January. BUT they all got together for Thanksgiving (a few days early - but 4 households). It's clear to me the governors of our country are trying to save people like this from themselves. LOL It's sad, as they're in their mid-70's and should know better.

Hope you and yours are all well.
