Arkansas Travel Advisory

The Arkansas Department of Parks, Heritage and Tourism (ADPHT) is closely monitoring COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in Arkansas and is engaged with 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 recommend individuals and families take advantage of open-air activities like hikes, visiting our State Parks and System of Natural Areas, and exploring our waterways.

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
We will continue to post updates as they are available.
