Coconino County Calls on All to Wear Face Coverings

Face It

COVID-19 case numbers in Coconino County have reached almost 1800 cases and are increasing.

 COVID-19 case numbers in Coconino County have reached almost 1800 cases and are increasing. The County’s highest weekly positive case count was reported last week at 276 positive cases. Coconino County officials remind residents and tourists of the importance of following best practices to slow the spread of COVID-19 including wearing a face covering.

Best practices to slow the spread of COVID-19 include wearing a face covering, maintaining physical distance of at least six feet from others, staying home as much as possible, remaining home if ill, and frequently washing hands and sanitizing surfaces.

“COVID-19 cases are increasing throughout Coconino County and we must all do our part to slow the spread of the disease,” said County Chairwoman, Sup. Liz Archuleta. “The County reminds all residents and tourists to wear a face covering and to take appropriate steps to slow transmission of COVID-19. We need you to take the right actions to help us save lives in our County.”

Coconino County issued a proclamation requiring residents and tourists to wear a face covering. The County requires a face covering which covers the nose and mouth in any public indoor space. The requirement also extends to any public outdoor space where more than six feet of physical distancing cannot be accomplished. The proclamation allows for certain exemptions, including children, individuals with disabilities and religious convictions that prohibit them from wearing a face covering. A copy of the proclamation and a Face Coverings Frequently Asked Questions document to help explain certain circumstances and exemptions is available at

The County also requires all employee and any public members to wear a face covering when in County buildings. Those who do not have a mask will be provided one. Any person not wearing a mask will be asked to conduct their business over the phone or email with the County to protect public servants and the public from COVID-19.
