ACLU-DE COVID-19 Response

Even in a public health emergency, the government must make every effort to protect the rights of Americans, especially those in our society who are most vulnerable. The ACLU of Delaware is watching closely to make sure that the government's response is scientifically justified and no more intrusive on civil liberties than absolutely necessary. Check back here to stay up-to-date on what we're doing to protect civil liberties in Delaware amid this rapidly-changing COVID-19 environment.

If you believe your rights have been violated and would like to receive our help, please fill out our online complaint form by clicking here.

Individuals with general questions about coronavirus, testing, or vaccination can call 2-1-1 or text your ZIP code to 898-211 for deaf and hard of hearing. For those with specific health-related questions, email us at

What you can do to mitigate the impact of COVID-19:

  • Wear a face covering in public
  • Maintain social distancing (at least 6 feet from others)
  • Practice good hand hygiene
  • Cough or sneeze into your elbow
  • Clean frequently used surfaces often
  • Don’t go to work if you are sick
  • Call your doctor about testing if you are experiencing symptoms

Where to go for more information:

HB 37 is the Public Health Bill that Delaware Prisons Need

Rooted in expert recommendations, HB 37 is fair and effective. Please stand with us in support of HB 37 by asking your legislators to vote "YES" on HB 37 and letting Governor Carney know that this bill is important to you, too.
