Commissioners may consider easing mask-wearing requirements further

May 14, 2021

So that Rehoboth Beach guidelines align with the state of Delaware’s covid safety guidelines that go into effect May 21, the Board of Commissioners will likely consider at its May 21 regular meeting further easing requirements related to wearing masks outdoors. Specifically, the mayor and commissioners will consider endorsing a sixth modification to the city’s civil emergency order that would make masks unnecessary on the boardwalk.

The state’s 28th modification, effective May 21, recommends that masks be worn outdoors when in large crowds that include unvaccinated people. In addition, new CDC mask guidelines suggest that fully vaccinated people may go without masks in most places.
