As Arkansans continue to adjust to a new normal brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Little Rock has made available to residents, businesses, churches and other organizations, a tool kit aimed at helping illustrate the importance of social distancing and wearing face coverings.

 

The kit can be downloaded at LittleRock.gov/covid19. It includes signage with the City’s Keep Covered and Keep Your Distance messaging; Little Rock Mayor Frank Scott, Jr.’s executive order requiring face coverings in public; and graphics that may be used for social media or displayed on monitors. Each piece is available in English and Spanish.

 

The city also has large signs (22” x 28”) in English and Spanish available for contactless pick up at City Hall.

 

“We want people to remember as they are out enjoying public spaces, that the coronavirus is still a very real threat,” said Little Rock Mayor Frank Scott, Jr. “We want to remind them that masks and face coverings make a difference and social distancing saves lives.”

 

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention reports that social distancing leads to 33 percent fewer contacts and that masks protect those around the wearer from contracting coronavirus, which is easily spread through droplets expelled during sneezing, coughing, singing or even talking.
