    The Pima County Board of Supervisors at its July 6 meeting voted 3-2 to resume in-person meetings on Aug. 16, pending the completion of construction currently taking place in the Board of Supervisors Hearing Room. Should construction not be completed in August, the first in-person meeting could be postponed until Sept. 7.

    The Board also voted 3-2 to add an additional meeting on Aug. 10, which will be held virtually. Members of the public may view the meeting by clicking “Board Meeting Livestream” under the “Quick Links” heading on the County website (www.pima.gov), on Pima County’s Facebook page, or via Cox and Comcast Cable Channel BOS meeting96. Access can be obtained by contacting the Clerk of the Board’s Office at (520) 724-8449 or emailing: COB_mail@pima.gov

    County Administrator Chuck Huckelberry in a July 1 memo to the Board outlined public health protocols that went into effect July 5 developed in consultation with Dr. Francisco Garcia, deputy county administrator and chief medical officer; and Dr. Theresa Cullen, Health Department director. Those protocols, included on signs placed at the entrances of all County buildings and facilities, include:
    • Requesting those who are sick to not enter the building;
    • Advising those who are vaccinated that they are not required to wear a mask or practice physical distancing; 
    • Advising those who are not vaccinated that they are required to wear a mask in the building and follow physical distancing and hygiene protocols; and
    • Advising that frequent hand washing and other hygiene practices should be observed 
    Vaccinated individuals may enter the Board Hearing Room to attend or participate in meetings. Unvaccinated individuals can participate through the lobby of the Administration Building by masking and sitting six feet apart to maintain social distance.

    The plexiglass barriers between Board members will be removed, but the barrier at the podium will remain in place. The occupancy limit of the Board Hearing Room will return to its previous Fire Code requirement.
