COVID-19 Response

Thanks to funding from the CARES act and at the recommendation of the Centers of Disease Control, we worked to establish a testing center, hire bilingual contact tracing and navigation staff, and provide tests for the uninsured and vulnerable populations in Northwest Arkansas.

On behalf of the Northwest Arkansas health care community, we are providing the following information to help inform and educate our region.

Citing declining cases and decreased hospitalizations in the state, Governor Asa Hutchinson ended the statewide mask mandate on March 30. Arkansans are asked to please respect the decisions of businesses and venues in the state that are still requiring masks.
