Covid 19 Policy & Guidelines

Effective Date: May 18, 2020

Directive Regarding Large Indoor Venues

The Secretary of Health, in consultation with the Governor, has sole authority over all instances of quarantine, isolation, and restrictions on commerce and travel throughout Arkansas, as necessary and appropriate to control disease in the state of Arkansas as authorized by Ark. Code Ann. §20-7-109--110. Based on available scientific evidence, it is necessary and appropriate to take further action to ensure that COVID-19 remains controlled and that residents and visitors in Arkansas remain safe.

This directive covers indoor venues for commercial, community, or civic events and activities where an audience, spectators, or a gathering of people are present, such as at concerts, plays, movies, lectures, presentations, conferences, conventions, sporting events, races, fundraisers, trade shows, and festivals.

Examples of such venues include auditoriums, lecture halls, movie theatres, other theatres, museums, arenas, sports venues, race tracks, stadiums, gymnasiums, auction houses, amusement centers, barns, exhibit halls, conventions centers, and funeral homes. Examples also include recreational facilities, such as bowling alleys and trampoline parks.

Gatherings subject to this directive also include, without limitation, community, civic, public, leisure, commercial, or sporting events.

This directive is not intended for places of worship. 


The minister/singers and funeral home staff must be separated from the audience by at least 12 feet.

An audience of fifty (50) people or fewer is allowed. 

Lines for entrance, exit, making purchases, or for other reasons must be marked or monitored for maintaining a distance of 6 feet between people.  

Seating must be arranged to maintain a 6-foot distance between members of the audience. 

Family groups may sit together but 6 feet should be maintained between groups. 

Every other row seating should be unoccupied to provide for 6 feet of physical distancing.  

 Face coverings are required for all persons present, except for children under 10 years of age, who are exempt. 

Minister/singers and funeral home staff may be without a face covering if they are 12 feet from other persons.
