Public-gatherings policy update out
FAYETTEVILLE -- A University of Arkansas, Fayetteville policy update requires state Department of Health approval for large campus events when attended by members of the public.
Open events with more than 100 attendees require "submission to and approval by the Arkansas Department of Health at least 24 hours prior to the start of the event," states a July 27 update to UA's Use of University Facilities and Outdoor Space policy.
A campus event is defined as "an on-campus gathering that is hosted by an official University of Arkansas unit or recognized student organization, or that is approved through the University's reservation process."
All campus events are to follow state executive orders and guidance "including with regard to social distancing, facility capacity, and use of face coverings."
The policy update is in place "for the duration of the COVID-19 emergency or until otherwise determined by the Chancellor."
Neither scheduled classes nor "informal small group gatherings" are covered by the policy, which lays out approval processes for events based on their size and if members of the public are attending.
Event organizers "are strongly encouraged to compile and maintain a list of event participants so the information is available if needed for contact tracing," states the policy.
