Health officials in Delaware are urging people who spent time in Rehoboth and Dewey Beach to get tested for COVID-19. Last week, Delaware saw about 100 COVID-19 cases from a testing location in Rehoboth and about a dozen in Dewey. Delaware Emergency Management Agency will offer free testing today at the Starboard from 1-6 pm.  Preregistration is already full, but some walk-ins will be accepted. There will also be a testing event on Thursday July 2nd at the Epworth United Methodist Church from 10am-2pm. Dewey beach has waived parking permits and meters. The director of the Division of Public Heath, Dr. Karyl Rattay said the state is very concerned by the new cases and warns that the virus could spread beyond the beach area.
