Petition for Fairness on Restrictions
We the People
We, as a group, ask / engage our elected official(s) to review and reverse the Governor Carney's latest Modification-27 revision signed November 20, 2020: Restrictions to Restaurants/Bars, Food Establishments, Places of Worship, Non-Profit organizations, etc has no basis of metrics and strictly hindered freedoms which is unconstitutional.
We have searched through the Delaware Division of Public Health and the Governor's office sites to locate metrics / statistics/ studies performed by the State of Delaware showing that Bars, Restaurants, and Games are highly linked to the spread of COVID-19 and we found none.
The President & CEO President of the DRA has stated to us “There are no metrics or statistics pointing to our industries"
Small Businesses, Restaurants, Bars, Gyms, Non-Profit organizations, Places of worship, etc. have been fighting to survive since March 2020. With this recent change in capacity, MANY will NOT thrive - OR - survive under this new mandate/modification.
We call on our State Legislators & Governor Carney to reverse Modification-27, or present the State's reports/ studies providing the specific metrics used and specific findings on the spread of COVID-19, and within which small businesses the studies were conducted to support Modification-27, signed on November 20, 2020
