>Arkansas will be submitting its application to FEMA for the $300 a week enhanced unemployment compensation 

>UAMS modeling that was released yesterday (8/17/2020) Governor Hutchinson and Sec of Health Dr. Romero appreciate all the data that can help drive policy making. Can’t measure the true accuracy in terms of predictions because they don’t measure active cases. We should be paying attention to the hospitalizations. Peak has been modified in the modeling at least 4 times- which shows the flattening of increase of cases.  

>Up 729 new cases to a total 54,216.
