Published

on

Wednesday will also be the start of the season on the North Shore Scenic Railroad. The first train will begin boarding at 10:30 a.m.

Ken Buehler, the General Manager of the North Shore Scenic Railroad, said a lot of time, effort and hard work have gone into making sure the highest levels of safety are in place to welcome back guests and passengers.

Buehler said cleaning and sanitizing protocols have been put in place using standards from the Centers for Disease Control, the State of Minnesota and St. Louis County Health Department.

As guests come back to the Depot, there will be deep cleaning done on a daily basis before the Museum opens and as the first train departs the station. Cleaning will also be done as the train is moving and in between runs.

Crew and guests will be required wear masks and new protocols are in place for visiting the Museum and riding the Trains. Some of these new safety features include:

-In the Train Museum there will be one way directional tours. Guests must follow the arrows and signs. All exhibit push buttons have been replaced by motion sensitive touchless switches. Access to some exhibits has been restricted. Hand sanitizer stations have been placed throughout the building as well.

Train Museum Hours are Sunday, Monday & Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. for Pizza Train nights. The rest of the Depot will be closed Mondays.

-On the North Shore Scenic concierge boarding eliminates lines. Vestibules on each car will be open and hand sanitizer stations have been placed throughout the train. Open window and open air cars are available as well. 

The Railroad Schedule is listed below:

-Duluth Zephyr departs at 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. daily.

-Music & Pizza Train, which is a two-and-a-half-hour excursion to Knife River, departs Wednesday through Saturday at 6:00 p.m. 

The North Shore Scenic Railroad is doing NO RISK Reservations. This means if there is to be a change in operation that affects a passenger’s reserved ticket, the railroad will reschedule to another date and time and waive any and all fees. If this isn’t possible for guests, gift certificates good for two years will be offered or a refund for the price of the ticket.

Additional information and reservations can be found here or by calling the North Shore Scenic Railroad at 218-722-1273.

To protect personal health information, DPH will not confirm specific information about any individual case, even if other persons or entities disclose it independently.

The latest Delaware COVID-19 case statistics* cumulatively since March 11, provided as of 6 p.m., Wednesday, July 8, include:

  • 12,531 total positive cases
  • New Castle County cases: 5,626
  • Kent County cases: 1,795
  • Sussex County cases: 5,008
  • Unknown County: 102
  • Females: 6,899; Males: 5,614; Unknown: 18
  • Age range: 0 to 104
  • Currently hospitalized: 63; Critically ill:12 (This data represents individuals currently hospitalized in a Delaware hospital regardless of residence, and is not cumulative.)
  • Delawareans recovered: 6,901
  • 117,674 negative cases**
    *Data are provisional and subject to change.
    **Data on negative cases are preliminary, based on negative results reported to DPH by state and commercial laboratories performing analysis.

Delaware is considering patients fully recovered seven days after the resolution of their symptoms. Three days after symptoms resolve, patients are no longer required to self-isolate at home; however, they must continue to practice strict social distancing for the remaining four days before returning to their normal daily routine.

Additional demographic data on COVID-19 cases and deaths, including race/ethnicity, more age-specific data and rates information by ZIP code, can be found on the Division of Public Health’s My Healthy Community data portal.

Information about testing events, including community testing sites and free-standing sites operated by the health care systems and hospitals, will be listed on the testing section of the Delaware coronavirus website at: https://coronavirus.delaware.gov/testing/. Please note for saliva-based testing events that while long-term care facilities are listed on the Curative registration site, they are not community-based testing sites. The long-term care facility registrations are not open to the public nor to family members of long-term care residents.

If you are sick with any of the following symptoms, stay home: fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, muscle aches, fatigue, chills, shaking with chills, loss of smell or taste. Other symptoms such as headache or digestive symptoms (vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain or lack of appetite) have been identified as potential symptoms related to COVID-19 and may prompt further screening, action or investigation. If you are sick and need essential supplies, ask someone else to go to the grocery store or the pharmacy to get what you need.

If you believe you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, or have symptoms of illness, make sure to distance yourself from others, particularly vulnerable populations. Older adults and people of any age with serious underlying medical conditions – including serious heart conditions, chronic lung conditions, including moderate to severe asthma, severe obesity and those who are immunocompromised, including through cancer treatment – may have a higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19.

Individuals who have complaints about individuals violating public gathering restrictions should contact state or local law enforcement. Concerns that a business may be violating operating restrictions should be directed to: HSPContact@delaware.gov. Questions related to business re-openings or operations as businesses reopen should go to COVID19FAQ@delaware.gov.

Individuals with questions about COVID-19 should call Delaware 2-1-1, individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing can text their ZIP code to 898-211, or email info@delaware211.org. Hours of operation are 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Monday through Friday; 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Medically related questions regarding testing, symptoms, and health-related guidance can be submitted by email at DPHCall@delaware.gov. Questions regarding unemployment claims should be emailed to: UIClaims@delaware.gov.

In addition, the Division of Public Health asks any Delaware health care, long-term care, residential, or other high-risk facility with questions or concerns to email: DPH_PAC@delaware.govor call the DPH Call Center at 1-866-408-1899 and press ext. 2.
