The Arts and Culture industry is comprised of several different types of businesses: performing arts; museums, galleries, libraries, historical attractions and arts education institutions. This specific guidance for this industry goes beyond the general guidance that applies to all businesses. Read more

Workplace Activity:

  • Adjusted workplace hours and shifts (if working in-person, leverage A/B teams or staggered arrival/departure) to minimize contact across employees and reduce congestion at entry points; close contacts of infected individuals should telework until safe per DPH guidance.

Gathering/Audience Size:

  • In-person operation of this industry is allowable under strict social-distancing restrictions, increased cleaning regimen.

Physical Distancing:

  • Patrons, volunteers, and staff must wear cloth face coverings in accordance with the State of Emergency Order.
  • Timed tickets are recommended. Reservations and ticketing services should be made online/phone with no cash or paper tickets exchanged to the greatest extent possible. Install physical barriers at ticket booths, such as sneeze guards and partitions, and change layout of workspaces to reduce employees’ exposure to guests. Contactless payment merchandise should be maximized; disinfect between transactions and comply with other retail recommendations.
  • Provide electronic playbills, maps, or information in place of paper.
  • Tours must be self-guided and must include a specific start time and duration of visit.

  • Audience queues must maintain a 6 feet distance between individual household units.
  • For indoor venues, limit up to 30% capacity while ensuring 6 feet radius around individual household units. For fixed seating venues, only 30% of patron seating may be occupied and there must be a 6 feet radius around individual household units. Patrons must exit their seats in an orderly, row by row fashion as directed by venue staff.
  • Maintain signage and markings to remind and help individuals stand at least 6 feet apart when in common areas, walkways, or while visiting exhibits.

This following provides guidance for outdoor social gatherings. All individuals should follow the general guidelines for individuals for Phase 1. This does not apply to outdoor religious services or fellowship, which are governed by Guidance for Communities of Worship.

Section 1: Outdoor Gatherings up to 250 People

Section 2: Outdoor Gatherings over 250 People

Larger gatherings of more than two hundred and fifty (250) people offer more opportunities for person-to-person contact and therefore pose greater risk of COVID-19 transmission, according to CDC guidance. Social, community, recreational, and leisure events of more than 250 people (“large gatherings and events”) are prohibited at all locations and venues, including but not limited to parades, festivals, graduation ceremonies, conventions, fundraisers, sporting events and fairs.

However, hosts of planned outdoor large gatherings and events may apply to host a large gathering or event by submitting a plan to covid19faq@delaware.gov at least seven (7) days prior to the anticipated event. Plan approval is subject to the discretion of the Division of Small Business or Department of Education, who in consultation with the Division of Public Health, will consider how to prevent, reduce the spread of, and suppress COVID-19 in relation to any gathering or event permitted

Delaware/Regional Grants

Detwiler Family Foundation Accepting Applications for Education, Arts Access Programs

The Detwiler Family Foundation invests in local organizations working to enrich and improve the lives of children.

To that end, the foundation is inviting applications from organizations focused on serving children dealing with difficult life challenges by facilitating access to education and the arts.

To be eligible, applicants must be tax exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and be located in Chester or Montgomery County in Pennsylvania, New Castle County in Delaware, or Portland, Oregon.

See the Detwiler Family Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.


The COVID-19 Strategic Response Fund will target evolving needs of the state’s most-impacted communities, for the longer-term needs of our community. The Delaware Community Foundation (DCF) will house and manage this fund. The DCF and PD will work with philanthropists to assemble funds for a collective response. This response will be coordinated with the activities of Delaware Does More.


The City of Philadelphia’s Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy (OACCE), the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance (GPCA), and the Philadelphia Cultural Fund (PCF) have partnered to create the COVID-19 Arts Aid PHL, a new emergency support fund focused on the arts and culture sector in the Philadelphia region. COVID-19 Arts Aid PHL will support individual artists as well as small arts and culture organizations (Annual budgets no greater than $250,000) and mid-sized organizations (Annual budgets of $250,000 – $15M) whose operations, work and livelihood have been deeply affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Applications are now open and will be accepted on a rolling basis, subject to available funds. Applicants can only submit one request to COVID-19 Arts Aid PHL, but may apply for support through any other relief funding available – a list of available resources and funding sources are available at creativephl.org/opportunities and philaculture.org/coronavirus.

Paycheck Protection Program

Forgiveness Form

The form and instructions inform borrowers how to apply for forgiveness of their PPP loans, consistent with the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act). SBA will also soon issue regulations and guidance to further assist borrowers as they complete their applications, and to provide lenders with guidance on their responsibilities.

The form and instructions include several measures to reduce compliance burdens and simplify the process for borrowers, including:

  • Options for borrowers to calculate payroll costs using an “alternative payroll covered period” that aligns with borrowers’ regular payroll cycles
  • Flexibility to include eligible payroll and non-payroll expenses paid or incurred during the eight-week period after receiving their PPP loan
  • Step-by-step instructions on how to perform the calculations required by the CARES Act to confirm eligibility for loan forgiveness
  • Borrower-friendly implementation of statutory exemptions from loan forgiveness reduction based on rehiring by June 30
  • Addition of a new exemption from the loan forgiveness reduction for borrowers who have made a good-faith, written offer to rehire workers that was declined

PPP Flexibility Act

On June 5, the President signed into law the Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act to provide borrowers greater flexibility in getting their loans forgiven. Yesterday, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and SBA Administrator Jovita Carranza released a joint statement outlining the changes.

Please note that while the “covered period” of the loan was extended from eight weeks to 24 weeks, the deadline for applying for a PPP loan application remains June 30, 2020.  If you’re still interested in applying for a forgivable PPP federal loan, please do not delay. There is still more than $130 billion in available funds and you must apply by the end of this month.
