As you know, events related to the COVID-19 virus continue to impact our nation, Arizona and Peoria. Not only that, changes are unfolding quickly. On March 19, 2020, Peoria Mayor Cathy Carlat declared a state of local emergency in response to the (COVID-19) global pandemic to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the people. This action allows the flexibility to deploy emergency management measures as necessary, and ensures those within Peoria city borders can readily access state and federal assistance, as it is made available.

“Public safety is the City of Peoria’s number one priority,” said Mayor Cathy Carlat. “As we continue to understand the impact of COVID-19, limiting community engagement is intended to support slowing the spread of this virus. I want to ensure Peoria residents that our core services, including police, fire-medical, water, solid waste, etc. will continue without interruption.

What Does this Mean for You

During this time, the City of Peoria calls upon community members and business leaders to adhere to social distancing guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:

  • Restaurants and dining establishments in areas of known community spread, which includes Maricopa County, are restricted to carry-out only (including curbside pick-up or drive-through service) per Executive Order by Arizona Governor Doug Ducey on March 19, 2020. Bars, movie theaters, and gyms are to remain closed. Read Governor Ducey's March 19th Executive Order.
  • Businesses should encourage telework, staggered shifts, and alternate work solutions for their employees.
  • Gatherings and events of 10 or more people should be cancelled.
  • Citizens should maintain a 6-foot distance between each other to reduce the risk of transmission.
  • Citizens are encouraged to stay home and avoid discretionary travel, shopping trips, and social visits as much as possible.

Peoria will continue to work closely with its partner agencies, including the Maricopa County Department of Public Health and the Arizona Department of Health Services, to determine the best steps as the situation evolves.

These impacts are effective March 22, 2020 until further notice.
