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.

Those who are feeling sick should stay home and contact your primary health care provider if you have concerns about your symptoms, particularly those with fever, coughing and shortness of breath. Individuals with general questions about COVID-19 can call DPH at 1-866-408-1899 or email DPHCall@delaware.gov. Individuals with hearing impairment can call 7-1-1.
