[ARCHIVED] City of Cottonwood Encourages Local Restaurants/Bars to Prepare for Public Occupancy Restriction



The City of Cottonwood Encourages Local Restaurants and Bars to Prepare for Public Occupancy Restriction

COTTONWOOD, AZ – March 19, 2020 – In response to the continuing and approaching spread of COVID-19, the City regretfully anticipates the necessity of imposing temporary restrictions on local restaurants, bars, and other public establishments where people routinely congregate in groups of 10 or more. We ask that our local establishments please begin to make plans to accommodate this upcoming mandate, including setting up internal procedures that would allow for curbside pickup and/or delivery service options for businesses that wish to continue to operate in this manner.

Mayor Tim Elinski is establishing a Community Task Force to coordinate and provide available support and assistance to our community’s valued businesses as well as our most vulnerable fellow citizens, especially those who already are or who soon will be impacted by the current public health emergency and its economic consequences. Citizens and businesses are asked to please exercise patience, understanding, and compassion as our plans develop to address this unprecedented challenge. We will update this announcement as more information becomes available.

The City of Cottonwood will keep the COVID-19 portion of the website up-to-date as new information becomes available:
