The North Little Rock Convention & Visitors Bureau is closely monitoring COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in Arkansas and is following the lead of the City of North Little Rock, Arkansas Department of Parks, Heritage and Tourism (ADPHT) and state health officials to ensure preparedness as the situation evolves. The health and safety of our residents and our visitors is, and will always be, our top priority. With this in mind, we encourage potential travelers to assess their own health risks before traveling.
For those who choose to travel inside the state of Arkansas, our industry is taking steps to ensure safe spaces during this time. We have updated attractions to show if any are temporarily closed. We recommend individuals and families take advantage of open-air activities like hikes, visiting our parks and waterways.
As of March 19, 2020, Arkansas Governor Hutchinson has banned dine-in at restaurants and bars. Restaurants and bars can still serve to-go, curbside and through delivery services, and are permitted to sell beer and wine for off-premise consumption for the next 30 days.
During this time, you can support local restaurants by ordering to-go and leveraging delivery services. We are maintaining a list of restaurants offering these services.
All visitors and residents should adhere to the following recognized healthy habits as directed by the Centers for Disease Prevention (CDC).
- Wash hands often
- Cough into your elbow and sneeze into a tissue
- Consult with a doctor before traveling when sick
- Stay up-to-date on vaccinations
- Avoid contact with people who are already sick
- Avoid contact with animals while traveling
- Clean frequently touched objects and surfaces
- Be aware of latest travel advisories from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and U.S. State Department
