Covid update: Hospitalizations drop below 100

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The Delaware Division of Public Health reported hospitalizations dropped below 100 for the first time in months.

New cases rose above 200, but remain below the 300 figure reported earlier in the spring. Delaware is nearing the 50 percent mark when it comes to people who have received at least one dose of vaccine. 

The number of vaccinations has been dropping as the issue of vaccine hesitancy surfaces. The state and its partners are now offering walk in vaccinations and other options.
