The Flagstaff City Council Adjusts COVID Protocols For Two City Venues And Talks Masks At Tuesday’s Work Session

The Flagstaff City Council has given city staff direction to modify COVID protocols at a couple of the city’s facilities due to rising COVID case numbers. Council made the recommendations at Tuesday’s work session. Council decided to reduce capacity at the Jay Lively Activity Center to 100 people maximum, with masks required. Also, capacity at the Flagstaff Aquaplex pool will be reduced to 30 and library computer use will be restricted to one hour. As for masks, the city has run out of the KN95 masks that were available earlier this week. Mayor Paul Deasy said in the session that Northern Arizona Health Care has offered five-thousand KN95 masks to the city for distribution. When it came to providing more masks to the community, the majority of council agreed to lean on the Coconino County Health and Human Services Department for any future mask disbursements. Mayor Deasy was the only councilmember opposed to the direction. County health officials tell KAFF News there are no current plans for any mask distribution events by the county. Council encourages people visiting city facilities to wear KN95 or N95 masks when available, as those masks offer better protection against COVID-19 than surgical or cloth masks do. The city council will adjust COVID protocols as needed.
