County declares emergency

The La Paz County Board of Supervisors adopted a proclamation declaring a state of emergency in the County.

According to the County, the declaration has nothing to do with a finding of a COVID-19 case in La Paz County, but will allow the County to request additional resources and potential mutual aid from other political sub-divisions and entities.

The declaration says that the La Paz County Health Department Emergency Operations Center was opened as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic and a Joint Information Center was established for the coordination of public information.

The declaration states that the County will continue to plan for closures, modified staffing plans, working from home, and continuity of County government.

“Now therefore, it is proclaimed, that a local emergency now exists in La Paz County,” the declaration says.

“County facilities will remain open for the time being, but various programs, events and activities can be suspended as may become necessary. Further details regarding suspended programs, events and activities will be forthcoming.”
