As the Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) situation continues to evolve, there have been increased directives and recommendations from federal officials and city and state government officials in Arkansas emphasizing that gatherings of greater than 10 people be avoided, cancelled and/or rescheduled. Additionally, on March 19, Governor Hutchinson ordered the closure of all bars and limited restaurants to carryout/delivery, until further notice. Other public places where groups of people may gather have also been closed.

Based upon this and in consideration of social distancing, new geocaching events, including CITO events, will not be published, until further notice.

Additionally, for events which have already been published, the hosts should consider either cancelling the event or postponing it to a future date when such restrictions are lifted, and social distancing is no longer recommended.

For additional information on steps which should be taken if you are hosting an event which has already been published, see the Regional Policy section for Arkansas in the Groundspeak Wiki, found at the following link:
