Additional Guidance On Essential Services from Governor Ducey

PHOENIX⁠ — The Governor’s Office today released additional guidance on essential services and recreational activities.

“During these unprecedented times, providing clarity for small businesses and employers is an important measure to ensure we protect our citizens, slow the spread of COVID-19, and protect this critical part of our economy,” said Governor Doug Ducey. “As guidance from public health officials evolves, we will continue to release information and direction.”

On March 23, 2020, Governor Ducey issued an Executive Order defining essential services. On March 30, 2020, following new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and recommendations from the Arizona Department of Public Health, Governor Ducey issued an Executive Order directing Arizonans to Stay Home, Stay Healthy, and Stay Connected, which included increased physical distancing requirements.

If not already closed, the following services shall cease operations no later than 5 p.m. on April 4, 2020, as these services cannot comply with the guidelines required in paragraph 11 of Executive Order 2020-18, directing Arizonans to Stay Home, Stay Healthy, and Stay Connected.

  • Communal pools such as those at hotels, condominiums, apartment complexes and parks, however, these should still be maintained under environmental and public health rules and guidelines.
  • Swap meets

The Governor’s Office also provided guidance related to the following services, which are considered essential and may continue operations:

  • Personal hygiene services including in-home services such as assistance with bathing and cleaning for vulnerable adults and those who are disabled.

Mayors COVID-19 Statement March 20 2020picture

Text of Statement:



As I stated in my letter to the citizens of Coolidge dated March 18, 2020, the City Council would make adjustments to our efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19. On March 19, 2020, the Honorable Arizona Governor, Douglas A. Ducey issued Executive Order 2020-09 limiting the operations of certain businesses to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Beginning at the close of business on March 20, 2020, all bars, movie theaters, indoor gyms, and fitness clubs located in counties of the state with effected COVID-19 cases shall close access to the public until further notice. Restaurants may continue serving the public through pick-up, delivery and drive-thru operations.

The Executive Order goes into effect Friday, March 20, 2020 at close of business by order of Governor Ducey.

This order shall remain in place until further notice and shall be reconsidered for repeal or revision every two weeks following issuance by the Governors Office.

The Coolidge City Council will have an agenda item on the March 23, 2020 meeting declaring a “State of Emergency” with the intent to issue a proclamation if approved. This declaration gives the Mayor and Council the authority to impose necessary regulations to further preserve the order and safety of the City, its residents and visitors. This declaration also allows the City to ask for Federal and State government assistance and financial reimbursement.

I urge all citizens to follow Federal, State and City directives and work together to get our community through this unprecedented time. Remain Coolidge strong!


Mayor Jon Thompson

Mayor Thompson Statement Picture


Text of Statement:

We understand the current situation regarding the COVID-19 virus is a major concern to our residents and visitors to Coolidge. The City is taking extra steps to ensure the wellbeing of all is our top priority.

There are currently no plans to send staff to work from home and we will continue to serve the public. Emergency personnel is also staffed and prepared for emergencies that may arise. There are currently no known cases of COVID-19, also known as coronavirus, in Coolidge. The City believes it’s important to remain proactive to minimize the risk to all those who live and work in our community.

We encourage our businesses to review the guidance provided by agencies like the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), State of AZ Department of Health and Human Services, Pinal County, etc. and take any action they feel is necessary.

With this in mind, the City has decided to take the following measures that will remain in place until April 1, 2020, unless guidelines dictate other timeframes:

- All City programs will be temporary suspended. This includes: Parks & Recreation, Library, Adult Center and other City sponsored events and programs.

- Adult Center, Library and Youth Center buildings will be closed. Other City functions, such as Courts, Animal Control, Public Works and Development Services will be open as usual.

- City meetings, including Council Meetings, will temporarily suspend the “Call to the Public” portion. If you have an immediate City concern, please contact City Hall so your question or concern can be addressed.

- Council and Planning & Zoning Meetings will be available the following business day for view via the web as they have been since 2008.

We continue to monitor recommendations by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), Pinal County and the State of Arizona. We will make adjustments as necessary as more information becomes available.

We appreciate your patience as we all work through this situation. We look forward to offering programs and opening activity centers soon.


Mayor Jon Thompson
