CITY OF NOGALES

COVID – 19  Response 

The City of Nogales is continuing to ensure that first responders are prepared for COVID-19. After taking inventory of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), both the Nogales Police Chief and Nogales Fire Chief are reporting ample supply of N95 respirator masks and surgical masks. Residents should be comforted knowing that the bravest in Nogales will have PPE to protect them during this pandemic. According to Deputy City Manager John Kissinger, the City has enough surgical masks and N95 respirators for first responders for approximately the next 3 to 4 months. These supplies were augmented by Mayor Garino’s work in contacting ALPHA PRO TEC to receive a donation of N95 respirators and face masks. The City is working to acquire additional surgical masks for non-emergency personnel to have on-hand if needed. The City reminds its staff and all residents that masks and PPE is an important tool, but should never replace health-recommended guidelines of social distancing and frequent hand washing with soap and water.

The Nogales Unified School District closed Pierson Field to the Public. Signs have been placed to notify the public. The school district made the decision due to COVID-19 and for the safety, security, and health of the community. At this time, City parks remain open. Residents are encouraged to wash their hands before and after enjoying their local parks, and to employ proper social distancing.
