The revised guidance comes as the percentage of Delaware residents getting at least one dose of vaccine nears the 50 percent mark.
Delaware is slated to sharply reduce Covid-19 related restrictions on May 21.
The change will include restaurants being able to position tables three feet apart rather than six.
The state still recommends the use of masks in crowded areas
The Delaware Restaurant Association quickly called for an immediate lifting of mask restrictions for customers who are vaccinated.
A message was sent to the office of Gov. John Carney seeking comment.
