Mayor Romero Issues New Mask Requirement

Yesterday, Tucson Mayor Regina Romero issued a new proclamation requiring face coverings to be worn in Tucson city limits. Effective Saturday, June 20, at 6 a.m., every person in the City of Tucson over the age of two is required to cover their nose and mouth with a face covering when in a public setting where continuous physical distancing is difficult or impossible.

Adult caretakers accompanying minor children who are two years of age or older, shall make a reasonable effort to have the children wear face coverings when they are in a public setting. Businesses whose employees interact with the public are required to have their employees wear face coverings.

The City has posted an FAQ along with printable guidelines in English and Spanish.
