• Effective May 21, capacity restrictions at Delaware restaurants and other businesses will be lifted, enabling them to host as many people as they can fit under the state’s social distancing requirement.
  • The Governor on April 27, 2021 eased outdoor party size restrictions to parties of 10 people and changed the mask requirements for student-athletes.
  • Starting at 8 a.m. February 12, capacity limits at restaurants and other indoor venues loosened as Delaware continues to see a decrease in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations. The new rules allow for 25 people or 50% of the stated fire occupancy, whichever is less, though organizers may ​request to host up to 150 people. Outdoor gatherings are limited to 50 people or up to 250 with an approved plan from DPH. Delaware bars and restaurants no longer had a curfew as of January 8.
  • As of November 23, 2020, the state limited indoor dining at restaurants to no more than 30% capacity. Restaurants and bars in Delaware will also have a 10 p.m. curfew, and businesses in the state will have capacity limits cut back under new restrictions.
  • Starting December 14, Delaware will also require people who are indoors with anyone outside their immediate household to wear a mask. This is in addition to the state’s current mask order, which requires everyone out in public to wear a mask.
