Mask Requirement Update

Posted on: March 31, 2021

 

03/31/2021

  As announced by Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson and the Arkansas Department of Health on March 30, 2021, the Mask mandate has been lifted for Arkansas!  The Arkansas Department of Health has updated its Face Coverings Guidance Effective April 1, 2021 which can be viewed at healthy.arkansas.gov., as well as many other helpful publications on the fight against Covid-19. Therefore, effective April 1, 2021, mask are not required when entering City buildings or on City properties unless otherwise posted.  The City of Alma has consistently complied with the directives of the Arkansas Governor and the Arkansas Department of Health throughout the pandemic and will continue to so.   Even though the Mask Mandate is no longer in place, we ask that everyone continue to make a mask part of their daily wardrobe and respect any business that chooses to continue the requirement of a mask to enter their facility.  The City of Alma continues to encourage the use of a mask whenever social distancing is not achievable, rather indoors or outdoors , and to continue good practices to prevent the spread of illness,  such as frequent handwashing, regularly disinfecting frequently touched surfaces and social distancing whenever possible.  We want to thank each of you for your patience, support and kindness toward others throughout this pandemic and simply ask that we continue these wholesome actions as we work our way back to normal business routines!

Mayor, Alma Arkansas

Thank you Arkansas Blood Institute! And Thank you to all who donated!

Posted on: January 20, 2021

 

Arkansas Blood Institute would like to send our heartfelt thanks to you for your recent blood drive. The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly impacted the blood supply for months, and we are grateful that you hosted this essential blood drive to ensure that patients across the region receive the lifesaving blood they need when they need it.   Your organization is to be commended for stepping up to give during this difficult time. 33 signed up to donate on 12/23/2020, and 32 were able to do so – each one of them saving up to three lives! Your organizations blood donors are heroes for local families who may be spending time in the hospital with their loved ones.   You may wish to let donors know that they could receive a personal message of appreciation from their blood recipient through the Thank the Donor™ program. Thank the Donor™ allows blood recipients to e-mail thank you messages, photos, and videos to their individual donors, while maintaining privacy. Messages, such as the one below, are received by blood donors through Thank the Donor™:

Because blood is perishable and needed every two seconds by patients like the one pictured above, Arkansas Blood Institute depends on your generous partnership to continue our lifesaving mission.   We thank you again and look forward to planning more successful blood drives in the future.   Sincerely,       Erin Goff Arkansas Blood Institute Account Consultant
