WILMINGTON, DE — Wilmington’s Mayor Mike Purzycki is urging City residents to continue to take steps to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

The Mayor said adherence to science and common sense over these many long months is starting to produce a reward of a more normal schedule for personal and public gatherings.

Additionally, Mayor Purzycki stated everyone will do even better as a City if residents continue to get vaccinated and tested for the virus. He is urging citizens to follow CDC guidelines regarding mask-wearing, social distancing, and other preventative measures until there is a certainty that the virus threat is over.
