Alert Message

Gov. Asa Hutchinson announced Tuesday that he will not renew the statewide mask mandate that expires at midnight tonight; however, school districts, private businesses, and medical facilities may still require patrons to wear masks as a preventative measure against the spread of COVID-19 under the revised guidelines. The University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville will maintain mask use and social distancing protocols on campus through the end of the spring semester. During its meeting on Friday, March 19, 2021, the Chancellor’s Advisory Committee discussed the topic of continuing the mask mandate on campus after the statewide mandate expires March 31. Campus constituents, including representatives from the faculty senate, staff senate, Student Government Association and the cabinet were involved in the discussion. It was agreed that continuing to follow mask use and social distancing protocols was in the best interest of the campus community.


On Friday, March 26, 2021, the campus reported its fifth straight week of having zero positive self-reported cases of COVID-19 associated with the campus. Our students, faculty, and staff have shown outstanding diligence in wearing face coverings and social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The campus community is asked to continue in its diligence to keep members of campus safe and healthy, not only for the benefit of campus but our community as well.
