LITTLE ROCK – Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge issued a statement following Governor Hutchinson’s Executive Order on a statewide mask mandate.
“I have long encouraged Arkansans to take personal responsibility of preventing the spread of COVID19 by wearing masks when not able to socially distance,” said Attorney General Rutledge. “It is imperative that we all take the exponential spread of this deadly disease seriously not only for the safety of family, friends and neighbors, but we must also reopen our schools and get our economy back to its full strength moving our country away from this virus and back to exercising our God given freedoms.”
