UAM Chancellor addresses mask resolution

Dear UAM community,

We continue to be concerned about protecting the health and safety of faculty, students and staff in light of the COVID-19 Omicron Variant.

The University of Arkansas System Board of Trustees’ resolution regarding masks/face coverings continues to be in effect. Students, faculty, staff and guests, regardless of vaccination status, must wear masks/face coverings in indoor public settings where physical distancing cannot be assured in accordance with CDC guidance.

UAM employees, students and visitors are required to wear masks/face coverings at all times in indoor settings where physical distancing is not possible.

Vaccinations are strongly recommended for all members of the UAM community to provide the fullest protection against COVID-19. Individuals may be vaccinated by contacting the UAM Health Center for assistance and guidance, 870-224-0647.

Disinfectants will be made available in all buildings and hand sanitizing stands are in place at building entrances. The UAM custodial staff will continue to frequently sanitize all building spaces.
More information about the Omicron variant and CDC recommendations are available at

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and support as we continue to strive to keep Weevil Nation safe and healthy.

Peggy M. Doss, Ed.D.
University of Arkansas at Monticello
