    The Pima County Back to Business Road to Recovery subcommittee will meet Friday, June 19 at 11:30 a.m. to provide suggestions and guidance to the Board of Supervisors and County Administration about how to get control of a surge in COVID-19 cases in concert with or absent of any aggressive action by Gov. Doug Ducey.

    The Road to Recovery subcommittee is made up of county, university and private sector health officials and physicians and was created to provide a scientific basis for County actions and requirements for reopening the economy after the governor lifted his Stay at Home executive order May 15.

    “Given the significant increase in COVID-19 infections, it is imperative the county receive factual information from the health and science communities about options for better containing this outbreak in Pima County,” said County Administrator Chuck Huckelberry. “We will advocate for enacting those scientifically and medically supported options with the governor. As a public health agency, we must consider taking all actions in order to save lives and protect the health and well-being of county residents.”

    The meeting will be held in the Supervisors Hearing Room, 130 W. Congress St., first floor. It is open to the public, though seating will be limited due to physical distancing requirements. Everyone attending the meeting will be required to wear a face covering.
    The meeting will be streamed live on the County’s website and on the County’s Facebook, and will be cablecast on Cox and Comcast Channel 96.
