COVID-19 Information

As part of the Commonwealth’s communication efforts, the Frontier Culture Museum will periodically post information from the Virginia Dept of Emergency Management. Our goal is to keep everyone informed regarding the containment strategies deployed by the Commonwealth to slow the spread of COVID-19, and to assist those struggling during these difficult times.

There are also many regional and statewide resources available providing information and support for Virginians dealing with COVID-19 issues. Please consider supporting the local non-profit organizations who are helping the residents of our region.
