According to NBC affiliate KNWA, UARK said that “Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the university is implementing various measures to protect the health and well-being of our community.”

The requirements state that a mask will be required at all times indoors and outdoors if social distancing guidelines can not be followed.

The requirements do make an exception for those with a documented medical issue that would prohibit them from wearing a mask.
