Background

Town Leaders are actively engaged in monitoring COVID-19 developments through direct contact with their governmental partners at the State and Federal levels and are planning and acting accordingly pursuant to the best information and advice from national, state and county public health experts and officials.

In light of recent federal and state health and safety guidance, the Town, by a unanimous resolution of the Town Council upon a special meeting called by the Mayor on March 17, 2020, has implemented an action plan to protect the health and safety of citizens and employees, effective immediately. Mayor Bien-Willner also issued a proclamation on March 17, 2020 that corresponds with the declarations of emergency by the President of the United States and the Governor of the State of Arizona to ensure that public health and safety are preserved and that the best practices from health experts are continually being followed until we emerge from this current situation together.  Along with the other preventative measures explained in the links below, "social distancing" and restricting social gatherings to 10 persons or less are to be observed in the Town of Paradise Valley.
