Mayor Romero Extends Emergency Declaration in Tucson

Even though Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey let his stay-at-home order expire over the weekend, Tucson Mayor Regina Romero is keeping her emergency declaration for the city in place until early next month. The extension keeps Tucson's park amenities and City buildings closed (excluding Tucson City Court) through June 8.

The latest proclamation also encourages those out and about to adhere to social distancing requirements and wear masks. When the City does reopen its buildings, visitors will be required to wear masks or a face covering and may have a wellness check before entering. It also directs the city manager to continue to let employees telecommute whenever possible to minimize the spread of COVID-19.
