COVID-19 Response

Since the beginning of the pandemic in March 2020, the Northwest Arkansas Council has worked to support the community by providing access to COVID-19 testing, contact tracing and navigation, and vaccinations. Since February 2021, the Council and its community partners held over 160 vaccine clinics across the region and given over 66,000 shots.

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

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently relaxed mask guidance for communities where hospitals aren’t under high strain, and that includes Benton and Washington counties in Arkansas. The CDC recommends continued mask use in communities where serious cases of COVID-19 are straining the health system.
