Delaware reports first coronavirus-related child death

DOVER, Del. (AP) — State officials are reporting the first COVID-19-related death of a child in Delaware.

Officials said Friday that the death involved a child under the age of 5 who had a significant number of other health problems.

Also Friday, Democratic Gov. John Carney lifted a 10 p.m. curfew on restaurants and bars.

Those establishments must still require patrons to wear masks and allow only those from the same household to share a table.

Carney’s order also allows sports contests and competitions to resume, with a maximum occupancy of 30%.
