COVID-19 Proclamation 2021-01

Mayor Wallace, in response to rising numbers of COVID-19 cases in Cochise County, has issued COVID-19 Proclamation 2021-01 which directs the Town Manager to roll back the phased re-opening of the Town’s buildings, including the senior center, library and town hall. The Mayor has also ordered and directed that meetings of the Town Council shall:

a. return to a remote meeting format, broadcasted from the Town Library; and
b. be conducted without calls to the public, though members of the public may submit written comments to the Town Clerk 24 hours in advance of the meeting; and
c. otherwise be conducted in accordance with the state’s open meeting laws.

The proclamation directs the continued implementation of Governor Ducey’s executive orders pertaining to restaurants and dine-in services, to ensure they implement protocols and best practices for businesses to address COVID-19 including physical distancing policies and limiting the number of diners, superseding previous guidance issued under Town Proclamations 2020-01, 2020-02 and 2020-03 pertaining to restaurants.

Mayor Wallace also respectfully requests that all local businesses, residents and visitors continue to adhere to the CDC’s guidelines through the implementation of social distancing, limiting the size of groups and following all other prescribed measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
