In response to COVID-19, Gov. Carney has issued a state of emergency and temporary closure of non-essential businesses.
Fortunately, medical cannabis businesses remain open, and the program has implemented measures to ensure patients can safely access their medicine in a way that is consistent with public health guidelines on preventing the spread of coronavirus.
For the first time, patients have the option of home delivery!
Columbia Care, which has locations in Wilmington, Smyrna, and Rehoboth Beach, is the first company to launch a delivery service. Additional dispensaries may offer delivery, but have not yet.
Compassion centers are also currently providing online ordering and curbside pickup for patients. If you are able utilize these services safely, please continue to do so to ensure patients who need delivery the most have access as the program begins.
You can find a list of compassion centers in Delaware here.
Regulators intend to allow delivery to continue even after the COVID-19 crisis has abated, so stay tuned for updates.
We wish you and your loved ones well.
