Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)

Governor Carney declared a State of Emergency starting March 13, 2020 and has issued subsequent modifications. See the Delaware Coronavirus website for the most current information. 

From the FAQ’s, extracted is the following (see last bulleted item) confirming the status of “biking” as a permissible form of exercise:   

“Essential Activities
 are activities that are necessary for you to maintain your health, and the health and wellbeing of your family members, including pets. Here are some examples of Essential Activities:
  • getting medical care and medical supplies, such as prescriptions
  • buying food, household supplies, and pet supplies
  • caring for family members, friends, or pets in other households
  • doing laundry at a laundromat or dry cleaner
  • exercising and going outside, such as walking, running, biking, fishing, or walking your dog”

    Information about “respiratory signature” concerns while cycling - even in small groups.

    The following link from Potomac Peddlers Club:

    “........A respiratory signature is, in non-textbook terms, the footprint we leave in the air every time we expel air from our lungs through our nose and mouth..........”

    John Kurpjuweit has provided the attached pics to graphically show respiratory concerns and masking measures cyclists can take as additions to their ride kit:
