REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. (AP) — Rehoboth Beach Police in Delaware announced they are monitoring cars with out-of-state license plates to enforce the governor’s mandate for out-of-state visitors to self-quarantine for two weeks.

The city of Rehoboth Beach said in a news release Tuesday that police have followed 59 out-of-state cars that entered the city limits since April 3. Police said they found 11 of the 59 drivers to be in violation of the mandate.

Officials are also keeping a close eye on activities on Rehoboth Beach and the beach’s boardwalk. Despite it’s closure, police said they found six people at the beach. No arrests were made in any of the violations.

The self-quarantine order by Gov. John Carney took effect last Monday morning. It does not apply to people who are only passing through the state.
