COVID-19 Operational Plan


  • Masks are required, regardless of vaccination status, in public indoor areas on campus—including classrooms, common areas and shared spaces of all buildings. Individual offices, residence hall rooms, and apartments are excluded. 

  • Implementation of campus events will be guided by what is feasible and practical and will be tailored to the needs of students.
  • All events will follow guidelines established by the State of Arkansas, Arkansas State University System, and Arkansas Department of Health.  

  • Attendees should wash their hands frequently and/or use hand sanitizer that will be provided.

  • Attendance and group size may be limited for some events.

  • We may limit or cancel any programs that invite outside community members to participate.

  • We may strongly encourage in-person meetings for student organizations to be replaced with video- or tele-conference calls.

  • ReddieLink will be used at every major event to make sure those attending are HSU students and/or people who RSVPed to the event.

  • Student organizations hosting events, both on or off the university campus, may require additional considerations that follow prevailing health guidelines.
