School closures and stay-at-home orders to combat the coronavirus outbreak have made internet access even more of a necessity for Americans, whether they need to log into virtual classrooms, just talk to family members or attend Zoom meetings. But not everyone has reliable access to the internet. To help connect residents, one Delaware county is creating drive-up Wi-Fi hotspots. New Castle County has begun building out wireless internet access points at public buildings so residents can connect for free. The idea is for residents to sit in the parking lots of public buildings, including libraries, the county government center and a local police academy, and to log on to Wi-Fi with their own laptops or cell phones, explained County Executive Matthew Meyer.
