Governor's Proclamation Requires All Arkansas Businesses to Post Sign At Facility Entrances
As part of Governor Hutchinson’s recent State of Arkansas Executive Department Proclamation EO – 20 – 13 (3) f, all Arkansas businesses are required to:
Post a sign at the entrance of the facility informing all employees, customers, and congregants that they should: avoid entering the facility if they have a cough or fever; maintain a minimum six-foot distance from one another; sneeze and cough into one's elbow; not shake hands or engage in any unnecessary physical contact;
The State Chamber/AIA is pleased to provide a copy of the notice for Arkansas businesses and organizations here.
We encourage you to print as many copies of this as you need and put them up at each of your facility entrances.
To lessen the incidence of COVID-19 infections in Arkansas, the State Chamber/AIA has developed signage encouraging Arkansans to wear face masks in indoor settings. The signs in English can be accessed here and here. The signs in Spanish can be accessed here and here. Both versions can be printed and affixed to the entrance doors of your company or organization.

Now, the resources center also includes a customizable workplace flyer to help you and your members communicate the steps your company is taking to keep them safe and prevent the spread of COVID-19 to employees and customers.
