In an interview with Kevin Andrade from The Voice Radio Network, Delaware Governor John Carney stated that they are working with the Secretary of Agriculture to ensure that adequate procedures are being followed, as provided by the CDC, to protect workers from the different companies considered essential.

Carney said, "We want people to maintain the 6-foot social distance, and if they are sick… don't show up for work, they better stay home."

He also stated that he has plans to meet with the operators of food production plants so that they take additional measures to avoid further contamination in the state.

Governor Carney also announced that there are hundreds of fans in a warehouse to use as needed. The biggest worry is finding qualified personnel to operate the equipment.

When asked if there was an estimate of when the highest contagious peak would be reached, he said "we do not know when, but in 2 or 3 weeks if we do not follow the emergency orders the state will see thousands of new infections."

The state of Delaware issued a seventh amendment in the emergency order on Sunday, March 29th, which orders visitors from other states to self-quarantine for 14 days and will only be able to leave if they need medical help. These measures are being enforced starting Monday, March 30th at 08:00 AM.
