Governor John Carney declared a State of Emergency beginning on March 13, 2020 mobilizing state agency resources to assist with the state’s response to the virus. The State of Emergency was modified on March 16, 2020 to limit Delaware restaurants, taverns and bars to take-out and delivery service (we recommend calling ahead to restaurant establishments for hours of operation and available services) only to help prevent spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Governor Carney’s updated emergency declaration also bans public gatherings of 50 or more people, consistent with updated guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and closes gaming activity at Delaware casinos.
Many craft breweries, distilleries and wineries are open for curbside to-go services ( please call ahead to confirm hours of operation and available services), click here for a listing of libations in Kent County.
