Governor Carney is concerned about the decision made by Mayor Rick Meehan of Ocean City, MD to reopen the beach and boardwalk on Saturday. Carney said in a press briefing that Delaware beaches could reopen closer to the end of the month but community spread of the disease remains a major issue. He added that Delaware is no longer “on the same page” with Maryland on beach reopening. The Ocean City beach reopening is not limited to Ocean City or Maryland residents. Like Delaware, Maryland still has a stay at home order that would technically limit a beach opening to Ocean City area residents.
