All retail stores in Arkansas will be open for business starting Monday, Gov. Asa Hutchinson announced at a news conference.
"We are open for business here, and ready for business in Arkansas," Hutchinson said Friday. "While we take the virus very seriously, we recognize the need to work and make a living. We want to continue to the next phase to continue to lift restrictions on businesses and activities in Arkansas."
Bars will remain closed but an announcement on a timeline for their reopening will come next week, Hutchinson added.
