NEWPORT, Ark. (KAIT) - ASU-Newport says it’s time to take the masks off.

During its June 3 meeting, the Arkansas State University System Board of Trustees voted to eliminate the mask mandate.

In addition to lifting the masks, ASU-Newport announced Monday that classrooms at all three of its campuses would no longer require social distancing.

Also, eating areas will be open to normal capacity and visitors will no longer need to make appointments.

However, if they or someone they know tests positive for the virus, students, faculty, and staff will be expected to complete a COVID-19 reporting form.
