Dear Friends of DEMCO,
DEMCO will be closed until further notice observing an Executive Order declaring a limited State of
Emergency in Delaware by Governor John Carney as a reaction to the spread of coronavirus
(COVID-19). We will continue to serve the residents of Kent county remotely. We will be conducting programs remotely. There are obviously heightened levels of uncertainty and anxiety as this virusspreads around our nation and across the world, but it is abundantly clear that we have a
responsibility to take reasonable and cautious measures to help slow the spread of the virus.


DEMCO supports the Centers for Disease Controls guidelines. Thus, we continue to urge all residents
of Delaware to practice personal safety consistently:


✓ Be sure to continue with infection control measures such as frequent hand washing and social
distancing.
✓ Monitor for symptoms of COVID-19, which are fever or feeling feverish, cough, shortness of
breath, or fatigue; while also being mindful of new symptoms, which may include loss of smell,
vomiting, and diarrhea.


If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, contact your health care provider. If you do not have a local
health care provider, call the Division of Public Health Call Center at 1-866-408-1899
(Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 6 p.m.; Saturday/Sunday, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.) or call the Bayhealth
hotline at 302-310-8477 or email coronavirus@bayhealth.org (Monday-Friday, 8:15 a.m. – 6 p.m.).


We look forward to the day when the order is rescinded and it is safe to serve you again face to
face. Until then, be safe. DEMCO staff can be reached by calling (302) 346-5308 or by visiting our
website at www.demcoinc.org.


Sincerely,
Leandra Marshall
