As part of continued efforts to reverse the trend of COVID-19 spread in Arizona, Governor Ducey announced today a continuation of Executive Order 2020-43 to prohibit large gatherings, cease the issuance of new special event licenses and pause the operations of bars, gyms, waterparks and tubing rentals.

The pause shall remain in effect until further notice and reviewed for repeal or revision every two weeks after July 27, 2020, after which businesses seeking to resume operations must demonstrate compliance with public health guidance as determined by the Arizona Department of Health Services. 

Today’s extension of Executive Order 2020-43 follows recent actions to boost diagnostic testing, incluing expanding rapid testing capability; amplify contact tracing; fund additional PPE and face masks for long-term care settings; and continued guidance for establishments to limit congregating and enforce mitigation policies.

“In a continued effort to slow the spread, Lake Havasu City will continue to require the use of face coverings within Lake Havasu City, this requirement will help build public confidence in the continued and safe reopening of the Arizona Economy. We continue to coordinate with state and local health officials in an effort to keep the public safe,” says Mayor Cal Sheehy.

In order to support the Governor’s efforts to slow the spread of the virus, the City will extend Proclamation 2020-03 requiring residents and visitors to wear a face covering over their nose and mouth, whenever they are patrons of businesses within Lake Havasu City or attending a public meeting at a City facility until September 1, 2020.
