Travel Advisory for the Delaware Beaches

Beginning June 1, 2020, the travel ban will be lifted and commercial lodging (including hotels, rentals, etc.) will be open to out-of-state guests without quarantine. Scroll down to see each beach's regulations.

Strict social distancing and hygiene requirements will accompany the reopening of Delaware’s beaches. Beachgoers must maintain at least 6 feet of distance between themselves and anyone outside their household. Face coverings must be worn on the boardwalk, streets and are encouraged on the beach. Restaurants will be open but reservations will be required and capacity will be limited to 30 percent.

Community pools in Delaware are open but are limited to 20 percent of regular capacity. Swim lessons or practices of swim teams are not permitted. Children under 12-years-old must be accompanied by an adult.

The out-of-state quarantine will be lifted on June 1, 2020.

Local officials also are encouraged to limit capacity on their beaches to prevent overcrowding and potential spread of COVID-19.
