5,000 deaths in the US so far, close to 600 Arkansans, yet the people of NWA are not taking social distancing seriously, and are non compliant.  What are we waiting for? Are Arkansans ready to sacrifice our loved ones-- or anyone, for that matter, just to entertain our boredom? Most of us already cannot go to work, and our children out of school. A stay at home order would not change much for the few of us that have been following the CDC guidelines for social distancing.

Governor Asa Hutchinson says "We are working to make Arkansas a great place to live, work, and raise a family." Why then, is Arkansas the only state that has not issued a stay at home order?  Hutchinson has already stated "I was concerned about the out of state visitors that are coming here. Also about the crowds that are not following social distancing requirements and guidelines that we have".

This is the concern of many as well, and I encourage everyone to take the steps necessary to protect the people of Arkansas, and help to issue a stay at home order ASAP. We do not have the time to waste on the matter. COVID-19 is already here, and being transmitted.

Boredom and being "stir crazy" is a state of mind, and the people of Arkansas need to recognize that their temporary state of mind is not more important that the possibility of hundreds of thousands deaths in the US that is anticipated. Please keep Arkansas safe, issue a statewide stay at home order and keep making it a great place to live, work, and raise a family.
