The city of Flagstaff entered Phase 3 of its COVID-19 Reentry Plan. The move to Phase 3 was predicated on the number of new cases, hospitalizations and COVID related deaths continuing on a downward trajectory for four or more weeks, the demonstrated ability to follow CDC guidelines, ability to care for the seriously ill and providing testing, monitoring and contact tracing. Under Phase 3, the city will begin a limited reopening of city facilities and amenities. Face coverings are required in city facilities.
The Flagstaff City Hall will reopen with limited hours of 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., Monday through Friday on Sept. 14. The Customer Service Counter will be open to walk-in customers, an appointment is required to meet with other staff.
The Main Flagstaff Library will begin a limited reopening for patron computer use on Sept. 14, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., Monday through Friday. The East Flagstaff Community Library will begin a limited reopening for patron computer use on Sept. 28, from 2 p.m. – 6 p.m., Monday and Wednesday, and 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., Friday and Saturday. Reservations are required for each 45-minute computer appointment and can be made online at the Library’s website: www.flagstaffpubliclibrary.org, or by calling the Main Library at (928) 213-2331; or the East Flagstaff Community Library at (928) 213-2348.
Curbside and phone-in reference services will continue. Masks will be required, and patrons will be assigned to a computer to allow for social distancing. Computers will be cleaned after each use.
Phase 3 of the Reentry Plan also includes direction for a tiered reopening of the city’s Parks and Recreation facilities and amenities. Those plans, which includes bringing part-time staff members back from furlough, are in progress and details will be released within the next few weeks.
