Face Mask Policy

Face Mask

Effective Monday, Feb. 28, UA Little Rock’s face mask policy is updated to recommend (but not require) wearing a face mask on campus.

  • Face masks are recommended at this time, especially where physical distancing can’t be assured.
  • UA Little Rock encourages the use of disposable medical masks in addition to, or instead of, single-layer cloth masks for additional protection.
  • KN95 face masks, in addition to disposable medical masks, are now generally available through Central Stores warehouse in Facilities Management. Building captains have the revised Central Stores personal protective equipment (PPE) requisition form that includes KN95 masks. The approval for PPE items by a Dean/Director remains the same. There is no charge to units for PPE supplies obtained from Central Stores. Building captains have placed a sign near building entrances that state where a face mask may be obtained.
  • The CDC updated its guidance to higher education institutions on Feb. 7, 2022. The most recent guidance continues to recommend consistent and correct mask use. According to the CDC, consistent and correct mask use is especially important for individuals who are not up to date on vaccines and when physical distancing cannot be maintained. UA Little Rock requires that students, faculty, staff, and guests wear a face mask in indoor settings, regardless of vaccination status. Reasonable exceptions may be permitted for specific settings and activities that follow guidelines established by public health agencies and/or by external governing bodies such as athletics conferences and the NCAA.
