Beach Safety sign

Restaurant Seating and Merchants

Many restaurants in Dewey Beach have reconfigured their table layout, provide one-use menus and more to help with social distancing and cleanliness. Visitors are encouraged to continue wearing face masks, and adhering to all safety measures to help everyone.

“We are where we are because Delawareans listened and stayed home,” said Governor Carney. “While we are slowly reopening our economy, it’s critical that Delawareans not rush out and undo all the hard work they’ve done to get us to this point. Let’s continue to be cautious and responsible as we ease our way into this new normal.”
