Mask mandate on campus lifted
Governor Hutchinson announced in March the lifting of the statewide mask mandate after consulting with Secretary Jose Romero of the Arkansas Department of Health. As the UACCB administration learned of the governor’s decision, it was determined that we would officially end the mask mandate on campus on May 11, one day after the end of spring semester.
The administration acknowledges that masks continue to be suggested within CDC guidelines, along with washing your hands and watching your distance. We also understand that wearing masks is your personal choice, as is being vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus.
Our hope is that as the campus continues to return to a pre-COVID arrangement, we will remain informed, responsible and respectful in our efforts to stop the spread of the virus.
