WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — Delaware Gov. John Carney announced bars in certain beach towns will close ahead of the Fourth of July holiday to limit the spread of the coronavirus.

The new declaration from Carney on Tuesday orders bars in eastern Sussex County to close beginning on Friday morning. The order says establishments can only serve customers who are seated at tables, and that customers can't stand at the bars. Carney said in a news conference there has been an outbreak of COVID-19 cases in bars and restaurants near the beaches.

The state's health department says Delaware has had nearly 11,500 positive coronavirus cases.
