On April 25, 2020, Governor, John Carney, issued the thirteenth modification of the Declaration of a State of Emergency for the State of Delaware. The thirteenth modification states, effective April 28, 2020, all individuals in the State of Delaware must wear face covering masks in public settings. Specifically, in settings where social distancing regulations may be difficult to follow.
Pursuant to the thirteenth modification, effective May 1, 2020, all essential employers must provide its employees with face covering masks and hand sanitizer, at their expense, where contact with the public is likely and where employees may be within the 6 foot radius of fellow staff. If an entering customer refuses to wear a face covering for a non medical, non documented reason, then the employer must refuse entry to this individual.
All employers shall post the requirements at the entrance of the business, as well as clearly visible signs throughout the vicinity to remind employees and customers of the requirements.
