Mask Mandate lifted in Arkansas

Mar 31, 2021 | News & Announcements

On Tuesday, March 30, Governor Asa Hutchinson announced the immediate lifting of the statewide mandate to wear masks. As a result, it is no longer required for masks to be worn in public spaces.

The decision to require masks to be worn can still be made by funeral homes and families will have differing opinions on whether they be worn at funeral services. If you choose to require masks to be worn – either for individual services or for the whole business – it is your right to choose to do so and guests can be turned away if they do not comply with the request to wear a mask.
