Emergency decree

extended by board

The Little Rock Board of Directors on Tuesday evening approved a resolution extending a local covid-19 emergency declaration for four more months.

Since the covid-19 crisis began in the U.S. in March 2020, the city has operated under a series of emergency declarations and related amendments issued by Mayor Frank Scott Jr.

The local emergency declaration issued by the mayor was set to expire this week.

Because of the extension, the emergency declaration is to last until the end of August. According to the text of the resolution, city directors will have the opportunity to review the emergency measure every month and can decide whether to end it.
