Douglas Mayor Robert Uribe has expanded his Emergency Proclamation of March 16 to reflect the Governor’s Executive Order issued on March 19 expanding the closures to include all bars, gyms, fitness centers, exercise studios, and other similar facilities.
This is due to the first COVID-19 case reported in Cochise County which requires all restaurants and other similar establishments are required to provide dine-out options only.
Although there are no identified cases of COVID-19 in Douglas at this time, the city is taking proactive steps for the protection of residents, visitors, businesses, first responders, city employees and others.
This proclamation applies to all city events and programs scheduled through March 31, 2020.
City Hall is being closed to the public starting March 23 and joins other city facilities that were closed to the public earlier this week. The other closed city facilities are the Library, the Aquatic Center, Visitor Center and all city parks.
The city will monitor the situation closely and implement new measures as needed. The proclamation will be lifted when appropriate.
If you have any questions, please contact City Administration at (520) 417-7303.
