WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — 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.

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.”
