FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASEContact:
As announced by Governor Asa Hutchinson at his press conference on Thursday, August 27, the Arkansas Department of Health will begin posting the positive Covid-19 cases in colleges and universities. This report is made available in conjunction with the same data for K-12 school districts across the state.
"Obviously, this data isn't in real time due to testing and the communication of the results," said Secretary of Education Johnny Key. "But it is data that will be used to inform decisions for altering instruction delivery and increased protocols for districts and higher education institutions."
The report will be published on the Department of Health's website every Monday and Thursday. You may access the report here.
