Due to public health concerns related to the containment of the COVID-19 Virus, the Delta Cultural Center’s Depot Museum located at 95 Missouri Street in downtown Helena, Ark, along with its other indoor venues, are temporarily closed. These facilities are scheduled to reopen immediately, once the state of emergency has been lifted. However, the  DCC's  outdoor parks will remain open to visitors.
