New Evening Time Restrictions

Arkansas businesses licensed to sell and allow consumption of alcohol on their premises must close by 11 p.m., Gov. Asa Hutchinson announced today. - FayettevilleFlyer

  • The directive goes into effect tonight, Nov. 20 and will remain in place through Jan. 3, 2021. The directive covers "restaurants, bars, and private clubs with “on-premise” permits."
  • “In an effort to reduce the spread of the virus as a result of prolonged social interaction in group settings, I am accepting the recommendation of the Winter COVID Task Force to require bars, restaurants, and clubs that sell alcohol for consumption in their establishment to close at 11 p.m.,” Hutchinson said. “This is a balanced approach that is limited and targeted as we work to reduce new COVID cases in our state.”
