Arkansas, which allowed restaurants and gyms to reopen earlier this month, is seeing a second peak in new cases, Gov. Asa Hutchinson said Saturday.
Several of the cases, the governor said, came from a swimming party attended by high schoolers.
â€œA high school swim party that Iâ€™m sure everybody thought was harmless,â€ Hutchinson said in a news conference. â€œTheyâ€™re young, theyâ€™re swimming, theyâ€™re just having activity and positive cases resulted from that.â€
The second summit has arrived about a month after the stateâ€™s count of new COVID-19 cases topped out around 300 on April 20. The highest single-day total is now 455, recorded on Thursday.
