Municipality Resources

Now is a good time to work with your emergency managers to review emergency and continuity of operations plans. If you’re in communications with businesses and employers in your area, share resources on preparedness and mitigating the spread of COVID-19.

Closed PODs

Municipalities, hospitals, utilities and other critical infrastructures need to continue operations during a public health emergency. Traditionally, workers would have to leave their job function to go pick up lifesaving medications but with a Closed POD Partnership, workers get their medications at the office. Closed POD Partnerships allow for continuity of operations during a public health emergency. In addition, many businesses will benefit from the volunteer match and corporate social responsibility opportunities that come with a partnership.

Face Covering Regulations for Maricopa County

In light of the rapid growth in positive COVID-19 cases, the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved regulations related to wearing masks in an effort to slow the spread the disease. The regulations create consistent minimum mask-wearing requirements across all jurisdictions while allowing cities and towns to set their own policies and regulations related to face coverings.

Some cities and towns have already passed proclamations and emergency orders. Board members hope other governments will take advantage of the expertise from Public Health and create consistent rules in their communities.

Enforcement is the responsibility of law enforcement and per the governor’s executive order 2020-40, it should focus on educating the public about the dangers of community spread. An officer should promote best public health practices and provide a warning, but if a person refuses to put on a face covering again, they can face a fine of not more than $50.

If a member of the public believes a situation requires the intervention of law enforcement, they should call the appropriate number listed below.
