Pima County Amends Rules on Restaurants

The Pima County Board of Supervisors this week voted to revise rules for protective measures some businesses should follow during a pandemic. The changes came after feedback from restaurant owners and others. The revisions include more lenient rules on masks, signage, occupancy, reservations or call-ahead seating, display of cleaning logs, and other items. Even as Pima County moves forward with the amendments, the proclamation is still being investigated by the Arizona Attorney General’s Office after some claimed the regulations are a violation of Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey’s latest executive order, which forbids counties, cities, and towns from making rules and regulations inconsistent with those issued by the governor. Meanwhile, Pima County has a list of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) suppliers that were vetted by its Procurement Department for businesses and others that are looking for supplies (link below).
