The department said 5,926 of those cases are active, meaning they don’t include people who have died or who have recovered. The state’s death count rose by one to 265, while the number of people hospitalized has risen to 300. Arkansas’ cases have steadily risen since last month, when the state allowed businesses that had closed because of the pandemic to reopen.
