At a Friday press briefing, Gov. John Carney warned against residents backsliding and not observing social distancing.

“The virus is. not going away,” Carney said.

He noted that while those over 65 are the most vulnerable, the disease can ravage younger people in some cases.

Carney said he has seen more people being less careful, including sports teams practices. He pointed out a troubling resurgence of cases in North Carolina.

Carney says COVID-19 metrics in Delaware continue to move in the right direction, with the rate of new infections slowing and the number of hospitalizations declining to the 100 mark.

The percentage of people testing positive has dropped below 5 percent.
