Large Gathernings Banned in Arkansas

From: KTLO/Associated Press

Arkansas is banning indoor and enclosed outdoor social gatherings of more than 10 people, with few exceptions, in an effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

Secretary of Health Dr. Nate Smith said Thursday the directive doesn’t apply to businesses, manufacturers, construction companies, places of worship, government or the judiciary. But it does ban sporting events, concerts, conferences, conventions, fundraisers, parades, fairs, and festivals.

Gov. Asa Hutchinson says the order is needed to avoid imposing a sweeping shelter-in-place order as in other states. The virus has infected at least 335 people in Arkansas and is blamed for three deaths.
