COVID – 19  Response 

The City Manager directed all City Departments to implement a work schedule, where a portion of the department works from home and a portion works at their traditional worksite on an alternating basis. It has been the historical practice of the City of Nogales to send employees home after potential exposure to COVID-19. This directive increases the City’s resilience, by reducing the opportunity for the spread of infectious diseases such as COVID-19, and by maintaining an adequate workforce to ensure a continuity of government and services, with at least a portion of the workforce better isolated from potential exposure. The City Manager’s directive seeks to slow the spread, while maintaining operations. This directive is not anticipated to have any major effect on services or operations. Residents may find their trash pickup day adjusted, and the City sanitation department will inform affected residents. The City Libraries will be impacted. The Tubac and Rio Rico libraries will be closed Thursdays and Fridays, and the Sonoita Library will be closed on Fridays. The City’s decision comes as the third COVID-19 case was identified in Santa Cruz County. The City is aware of Santa Cruz County implementing an alternate worksite schedule to promote resilience and continuity, and the City made its decision after discussion with County officials. According to statistics from the Arizona Department of Health Services, there have been 19,371 COVID-19 tests administered in Arizona, including 61 tests administered in Santa Cruz County.
