After “Illegal” Rodeo Event, DPH Urges Attendees to Get COVID-19 Test

After hundreds of people attended an event at Rancho El 24 in Bridgeville over the weekend, the Delaware Division of Public Health is urging all attendees to get tested for COVID-19.

In a statement to Delmarva News Network, DPH Director Dr. Karyl Rattay said “There is significant concern for community spread of the virus as a result of this event.” She continued “We want to make sure that everyone who attended that event knows they’re at risk.”

DPH and the Delaware Emergency Management Agency hosted a free testing event on Friday at Woodbridge Middle School in Bridgeville. More information on future testing events can be found at
