Delaware Gov. John Carney has announced that all teachers and school staff in Delaware will be required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 or undergo weekly testing. Carney announced the new requirement Tuesday. It will be formally issued by emergency regulation and takes effect Nov. 1. The requirement also applies to contractors and volunteers who work in K-12 public and private schools.

Delaware State Education Association President Stephanie Ingram says the state’s largest teacher’s union supports the decision and urges members to get vaccinated, calling weekly testing a “reasonable alternative.”
