Update from the Division of Public Health
Thursday, March 26:
Delaware announced the sad news that two Delawareans died from COVID-19. The first was a 66-year-old male from Sussex County. He had underlying health conditions and was critically ill. The second was an 86-year-old male resident of Little Sisters of the Poor Jeanne Jugan Residence in Newark. The individual had underlying medical conditions.
Our thoughts are with their family and friends.
