The 2020 Election in Delaware is in the books. 

And unlike on national landscape, things here went largely as expected – though the addition of mail-in voting and a huge turnout did add some wrinkles to the story in the First State.

To break down the results and what they means going forward, Delaware Public Media’s Tom Byrne chats with Delaware State News political reporter Matt Bittle

 

Schools in the First State are largely operating in a hybrid mode – a mix of in-person and remote learning. But keeping them in that mode or eventually moving to a full reopening requires keeping spread of COVID-19 in check. 

A group called S.A.F.E Schools believes to make that happen there needs to be a statewide standard for testing and contact tracing in Delaware schools. And it’s sent a letter to Gov. Carney asking for just that.

Contributor Larry Nagengast takes a closer at what this group is seeking and the response from the state and schools.

 

A new exhibition at the Delaware Art Museum celebrates Wilmington’s essential workers and their efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic .

“Seeing Essential Workers Through A New Lens” was created by two Delaware Art Museum employees, Iz Balleto  and JaQuanne LeRoy.

In this week’s Arts Playlist, Balleto talks to Delaware Public Media’s Kelli Steele about what inspired the project and his experiences through the coronavirus pandemic.

 

Throughout the pandemic, many people have cleaned out their homes, purging their closests, basements and garages of items that they don’t want, use, or need anymore.

And that has created a surge in donations.

In this week’s Enlighten Me, Delaware Public Media contributor Eileen Dallabrida takes a closer look at this phenomenon and its impact.
