Gov. Asa Hutchinson is urging all Arkansans with symptoms of COVID-19 to get tested within the next two days as the total number of coronavirus cases in the state increased Thursday to 2,465. That's 189 additional cases since Wednesday, along with three more deaths for a total of 45.
Hutchinson announced the statewide Arkansas Surge Campaign in his daily briefing, saying uninsured residents should not hesitate to get tested if they have symptoms, including fever, tiredness and a dry cough.
“If they want to get a test, they get a test. Period,” Hutchinson said.
