All test takers must follow health and safety recommendations to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus and we ask for your understanding during this time.

Face coverings are required in the state of Arkansas.

Testing Services reserves the right to deny services to any person who refuses to comply with health and safety guidance.

For specific guidelines on face coverings and other coronavirus related guidance please visit the COVID-19 Directives, Orders, & Health Guidances page page on the Arkansas Department of Health website and the University’s COVID-19 resource website.

Strategies to Protect Yourself and Others.

Our top priority is keeping our campus community safe, and that’s going to take all of us working together.

Our Returning to Campus Plan is based on the latest Covid-19 prevention guidelines from

the CDC and the Arkansas Department of Health.

We are asking for your help in adopting four campus-wide strategies:

  1. Wash your hands often
  2. Always wear a cloth face covering
  3. Maintain physical distancing, both indoors and outside.
  4. Stay home and monitor your health if you have any symptoms.

Handwashing

Wash your hands often.

Anytime you’ve been in a public place, such as in a classroom, stairwell or elevator.

Scrub with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, which is the amount of time it takes to sing the Happy Birthday song, twice.

Be careful to scrub your thumbs, the sides of your hands and under your nails.

Rinse your hands and dry them using a paper towel.

If it’s impossible to wash, use a sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol.

Hand sanitizer does not kill 100% of the viruses so always try and wash your hands with soap and water.

Face Coverings

It’s required to wear a face-covering -- both indoors and outside.

This includes all public areas, dorms, hallways, stairwells, elevators, restrooms and outdoor spaces or anywhere physical distancing measures are difficult to maintain.

Anyone can spread Covid-19 before they have symptoms, so face-coverings are for everyone’s protection.

The covering should be made of several layers. [Mask visual labels do's and don'ts].

Before handling your face covering, wash your hands or use hand sanitizer.

When you put on your face covering, use just the loops or ends of the cloth, cover your nose and mouth with it, and tie in the back or loop it around your ears.

Don’t adjust it by touching the front because this could spread the virus.

Instead, adjust your face covering from the sides or loops.

Physical Distancing

Stay at least six feet apart from other people.

That means if two people stretch out their arms, they should not be able to touch fingers.

Limit group size to be able to maintain six feet of separation.

Virtual meetings are encouraged.

Use stairwells whenever possible instead of elevators.

And if you use stairwells or elevators wear your face covering and then wash or sanitize your hands immediately after departing.

Crowded dining areas and break rooms require extra caution because you are at a higher risk when you are eating.

Physical distancing is required outdoors walking, in parking lots, or using Razorback Transit buses.

New passenger limits will be enforced on buses, so you may need alternative transportation.

Monitor Your Health and Stay Home if You Are Sick

Be alert for Covid-19 symptoms.

Symptoms may appear 2 to 14 days after exposure, such as:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough or Sore throat
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue and Body aches
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

If you have ANY of these symptoms, stay home, and immediately contact the University Pat Walker Health Center and follow their guidance.

Also, be on the lookout for emergency warning signs:

  • Trouble breathing
  • Pain in the chest
  • Confusion
  • Inability to stay awake
  • Bluish lips or face

If someone is showing any of these signs immediately call 911.
