In these unprecedented times, Mayor Cal Sheehy urges citizens, business owners, and event promoters to take immediate action to protect our community and its residents. We must all abide by the guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control, Arizona Department of Health Services, and Mohave County Department of Public Health, which means limiting our exposure, staying at home, and avoiding events and activities that put us in groups indoors and outdoors.

On Thursday, March 19, Governor Doug Ducey signed Executive Order 2020-09, limiting the operations of certain businesses to slow the spread of COVID-19 in Arizona. Bars, restaurants, movie theaters, gyms, fitness clubs and similar facilities are closed to public access for all counties in Arizona with a positive result for COVID-19. At this time, there are no confirmed cases in Mohave County for COVID-19. However, Mayor Cal Sheehy urges all business owners to take responsibility and do the right thing.

Mayor Cal Sheehy says, “Now is the time for our business leaders in the community to follow the directive from Arizona State Governor Doug Ducey to take the action necessary to restrict access to the public and limit community spread. Restaurants should continue to provide dine-out, delivery, and curbside options, but close access to on-site dining.”

“Residents must understand that what we do affects the health of others and what others do affects the health of ourselves. We have a responsibility to protect those that are susceptible to COVID-19. If you are young and strong, you can still spread the virus to a loved one. We need everyone to come together to protect our parents, grandparents, and our senior community,” said Vice Mayor David Lane.

Remain calm, be kind, and help your neighbor.
