Jessica Drum, Public Affairs Director for the City said in a press release yesterday that Flagstaff’s move to begin opening city offices and some park facilities was predicated on several factors.
- number of new cases, hospitalizations and COVID related deaths continuing on a downward trajectory for four or more weeks,
- the demonstrated ability to follow CDC guidelines,
- ability to care for the seriously ill
- and providing testing, monitoring and contact tracing. Under Phase 3, the city will begin a limited reopening of city facilities and amenities. Face coverings are required in city facilities.
