COVID-19 Updates

At UA Little Rock William H. Bowen School of Law, the education, health and well-being of our students and community is a top priority.

The resources available to students, faculty, staff, attorneys, and the general public may be found in the above tabs.

Face Covering Policy (August 11, 2021)

UA Little Rock requires that students, faculty, staff, and guests, regardless of vaccination status, in indoor public settings where physical distance cannot be assured in accordance with CDC guidance, wear a face mask. Reasonable exceptions may be permitted for certain settings and activities that follow guidance established by public health agencies and/or by external governing bodies such as athletics conferences and the NCAA.

To ensure face masks remain on in classroom settings, no food or drinks may be consumed in classroom settings. A cloth face covering, disposable face mask, or similar face covering that covers the mouth and the nose as recommended by the CDC is required and may be used as a face mask. A face shield may also be worn, but will not serve as a substitute for a face mask.

COVID-19 Testing Available

Health Services is now offering COVID-19 testing for UA Little Rock students, faculty, and staff who are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or have been identified as a close contact of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.

If you meet the above criteria, here are the steps to testing:

  • Call Health Services at 501-569-3188 to schedule a telemedicine visit with one of the Health Services providers.
  • During this visit, the provider will perform an evaluation to determine if COVID-19 testing is appropriate.
  • If testing is recommended, you will be given a time to report to the Health Services outdoor testing site.
  • The site is located under the white tent near the east entrance of the Donaghey Student Center.
  • COVID-19 testing is performed using a nasal swab, and the entire process takes approximately 5 minutes.
  • Once testing is complete, the sample will be processed and results communicated within 4 hours.

Health Services staff will evaluate other requests for COVID testing on a case-by-case basis and will refer elsewhere based on staffing and test kit availability.

There is no out-of-pocket expense for COVID-19 testing, however, if the patient has medical insurance, Health Services will file an insurance claim for the telemedicine visit and any tests performed in relation to that visit.
