National Park College is closely monitoring Coronavirus (COVID-19) cases on campus. 

  • Please continue to report any exposures to, symptoms of, or positive results for COVID-19 to the Health and Safety Office at Health.Office@np.edu or (501) 760-4266
  • Concern about the impact of the Delta Variant of the COVID-19 virus continues to grow as it is proving more contagious and impacting a younger age group than the original virus.   It also has a different presentation of symptoms,  with cough and sore throat being the most commonly cited symptoms, rather than loss of taste/smell or even fever.  Please, if you feel sick, don’t come to campus and expose others. 
For information about COVID-19 testing sites and other local information, visit the City of Hot Springs' website.

Vaccination and Testing Resources

Although vaccination is not mandatory, it is the most impactful protective step you can take to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.  The vaccines are safe and effective.  There are multiple places to get vaccinated in the Hot Springs/Garland County area and the best part is vaccines are FREE and appointments at most places are unnecessary. Walk in and leave vaccinated!

COVID-19 Procedure Updates

As NPC continues to evaluate the ever evolving COVID-19 pandemic and related protocols, we would like to inform everyone of some changes in our campus community.

  • Campus is open for use by community groups and organizations for events.
  • Campus screening stations have been discontinued.
  • Classrooms and common spaces will remain set-up for social distancing through the summer sessions.
  • Face coverings are no longer required, but still recommended
  • Guidelines for fully vaccinated people can be found at When You've Been Fully Vaccinated from the CDC.

Inclement Weather Updates
