With safe and effective vaccines to fight COVID 19 now FDA-approved and widely available, Delaware’s employers are increasingly taking steps to encourage and often require employees and customers to get vaccinated. The Delaware Business Roundtable and the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce applaud the actions taken by individual companies to create healthy work environments and protect employees, their families, customers and contractors from infection. In addition, we support the Biden Administration’s announcement yesterday to intensify efforts to compel vaccinations and expand testing since those two elements are critical to defeating the pandemic. We look forward to working in concert with Governor Carney to expand vaccinations in Delaware’s business, government and education communities. The Delaware State Chamber of Commerce is dedicated to promoting an economic climate that strengthens the competitiveness of Delaware businesses and benefits citizens of the state. Founded in 1837 as the Wilmington Board of Trade, the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce has a long history as the largest, most influential business organization in the state. The Delaware Business Roundtable is a non-partisan, volunteer consortium of CEOs whose companies collectively employ over 75,000 people in Delaware. Since its inception in 1981, the Roundtable’s broad mission is to enhance the quality of life in Delaware by promoting commerce, job creation and select public policy issues.
