The Arkansas Department of Health is partnering with Central Arkansas Library System and Laman Public Library to distribute at-home COVID tests. The UAMS Library is not part of the distribution plan so we will not have test kits available. Please see the ADH website for more information about distribution locations.
Due to the sudden rise in the spread of COVID-19, access to the Library now requires the following:
- Only one person per table and distance between tables no less than 6 feet.
- Only one person per group room
- Wear a mask at all times
- No eating or drinking in the Library
We hope these measures are temporary, and ask that you comply with the access guidelines to use the space safely for yourself, for others using the facility, and for the Library staff.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact Libby Ingram, Associate Director, 501-686-6732 or email@example.com

However, the COVID-19 pandemic requires us to reconsider the use of the space for the safety of everyone. It is critical in this space used by so many, that everyone adhere to these directives for your own well-being and for the good of those around us.
