Face Covering Policy

UPDATED September 16 at 9 a.m. 

On June 25, 2020, Oro Valley Mayor Joe Winfield issued Amendment #7 to the Town’s March 17, 2020 Emergency Proclamation. Amendment #7 formally adopts applicable portions of the Pima County Board of Supervisor’s Resolution 2020-49 regarding the wearing of face coverings in public (when six feet of social distancing can’t be continuously maintained) as part of regional efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19. This amendment does apply to Oro Valley Parks and Recreation facilities but with some notable points of clarification. In the case of the Oro Valley Community and Recreation Center:

  • Face coverings will be required at all times while at the facility. If unable to wear a face covering, individuals should not participate in activities conducted at the Community & Recreation Center and will not be permitted to enter. Appropriate masks will be available at the entrance if needed.
  • Face coverings or masks that incorporate a one-way valve (typically a raised plastic cylinder about the size of a quarter on the front or side of the mask) that is designed to facilitate easy exhaling do not meet the face covering requirements and will not be allowed at the facility. Appropriate masks will be available at the entrance if needed.

At the Oro Valley Aquatic Center, visitors will be required to wear a face covering when entering and while inside the facility, but will need to remove it prior to entering the water. Visitors of Oro Valley parks, trails and multi-use paths will only be required to wear a face covering when it's difficult to maintain six feet of distance.
