County Executive releases two COVID-19 PSAs on WDEL
New Castle County Executive Matt Meyer released two public safety PSAs recorded for WDEL last week as the county works to combat the spread of the novel coronavirus in our community. If you have a medical emergency, you must inform your 911 call taker of any COVID-19 symptoms. This will not impact your level of care, but will allow our first responders to take necessary precautions and stay safe while providing treatment.

Hundreds are using County's new free WiFi hotspots
Usage data shows over 300 people have taken advantage of free WiFi hotspots launched across New Castle County to help those without internet access during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Route 9 Library and Innovation Center and Bear Library have seen the most traffic followed closely by the Garfield Park PAL. New Castle County launched the WiFi initiative two weeks ago at the Garfield Park PAL with a press event and has expanded it to offer WiFi at 17 locations.

County delivers masks and PPE to local fire, police departments
New Castle County has been stockpiling personal protection equipment (PPE) to keep first responders safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. As part of that initiative, New Castle County Executive Matt Meyer delivered hundreds of face masks to members of the Elsmere Police Department, Wilmington Police Department and Wilmington Fire Department on Tuesday morning. Members of the Minquadale Fire Company picked up PPE supplies from the County's stockpile at the Government Center last week to keep their members safe.
