Safety 1st COVID-19 Health & Safety Guidelines

Mask Policy

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone, including fully vaccinated people, wear masks in public indoor settings in areas with high or substantial COVID-19 transmission rates. Central Arkansas and many surrounding counties are included in the recommendation because of our current COVID-19 transmission rates.

For this reason, we are updating our face covering policy to recommending that all event attendees for our upcoming events (regardless of vaccine status) wear masks inside Simmons Bank Arena, except when those guests are actively eating or drinking.

We will continue to monitor available data and recommendations from our government agency partners at the local, state and federal levels and make any necessary changes as new data and recommendations become available to us. Additional guidance can be found on the CDC’s COVID-19 Website.
