LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas will temporarily waive penalties for late registration on vehicles and tag renewal, the state Department of Finance and Administration announced Monday.
The agency said it will waive penalties for late registration and renewal through April 16.
The announcement comes as cases of the coronavirus continue to rise in the state. On Monday, the state reported 449 cases of the illness linked to the coronavirus, up from 426 a day earlier.
Six people have died in Arkansas so far.
For most people, the coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia and death.
