Responders from Marine Education, Research and Rehabilitation Institute, Inc., (MERR) were monitoring an approximately 2-month-old gray seal pup last week at Broadkill Beach.

Letter to the Editor: Pardon doctors, other health care workers

Letter to the Editor: Distribution of face masks and hand sanitizer is needed

Letters to the Editor

Please inform us where to find facemasks and hand sanitizer. Seniors can’t locate any in Dover. Perhaps a central distribution place or places could be designated. Even during shelter in place, we need to get groceries, prescriptions, and have medical appointments. I would like to do that according to safety precautions and not add more […]
