Maricopa County Board of Supervisors passes mandates on mask usage in public


CAVE CREEK – The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved mask regulations yesterday due to the community spread of COVID-19, which applies to all municipalities and unincorporated jurisdictions. The regulations go into effect at midnight on Saturday, June 20, 2020.

The County’s mask regulations do apply to the Town of Cave Creek. The intent of the Board was to create consistent mask-wearing requirements across all jurisdictions. Cave Creek did not mandate face coverings and will comply with the guidelines set by Maricopa County.

“We are hoping residents and cities and towns will partner with us during the pandemic,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman Clint Hickman. “We have seen more than 60 percent of total cases in the past three weeks. This will not stop unless the public consistently takes action to prevent the spread.”

Mayor Ernie Bunch said that it makes sense that the County would attempt to homogenize mask mandates throughout the region knowing that thousands of people move through municipalities each day.

“It is indeed a public health issue,” Mayor Bunch said. “It’s probably the smarter move because with every city doing something different you end up with a hodgepodge of regulations.”

Here are some of the highlights from the mask regulations approved by the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors.

  • People older than six-years-old must wear masks in enclosed public spaces where six feet of distance can’t be maintained.
  • Adults with children ages 2 to 5 must make reasonable effort to make them wear masks inside enclosed public spaces.
  • All riders and operators on public transportation must wear a mask.
  • Staff working in public spaces (such as restaurants or stores) must wear masks.

Exemptions from mask wearing that include:

  • People in their homes.
  • Children under the age of 2.
  • Restaurant patrons while eating and drinking.
  • People exercising outdoors that can maintain six feet of distance.
  • People in a personal vehicle, office, or personal space.

For more information read the County’s regulations.
