Division offices open but electronic interaction urged


In keeping with the provisions of Gov. Carney’s declaration of a state of emergency which went into effect on March 24, 2020, Delaware state agencies, including the Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs, remain open in order to serve the public during the difficult times arising from the coronavirus pandemic.

In accord with the declaration, the division has implemented a number of social distancing measures designed to safeguard the health of both community members and division employees.
