PEORIA, Ariz. (Dec. 7, 2020) – Based on the data used to measure the community spread of COVID-19 cases in Maricopa County, the City of Peoria has determined it is necessary to modify some of its activities, events, and facility operating hours. 

“Protecting the health and wellness of our community remains our number one priority,” said Mayor Cathy Carlat. “Our phased approach allows us the flexibility to respond to the broad reach of this virus. These mitigation strategies provide the swift action needed in our diligent quest to prevent the spread of COVID-19.”

Effective Monday, Dec. 7, the Peoria Community Center will close to the public. In addition, limitations on group sizes of 10 or less will be implemented in city facilities and buildings. Most city events and special interest classes have been postponed, modified or cancelled. The splash pads will remain closed. All sports tournament rentals at city facilities scheduled between Dec. 8, 2020 and Jan. 8, 2021 have been cancelled. The Rio Vista Recreation Center and Peoria libraries will remain open with a facial mask requirement and strict sanitation, occupancy capacity, and social distancing protocols in place. Community and neighborhood parks and trails will also remain open. Park amenities like restrooms, ramadas, dog parks, playgrounds and tennis and basketball courts are open with physical distancing protocols in place. The AM/PM and Lil Learners Programs will remain open while abiding by capacity, physical distancing and sanitation protocols.

The City of Peoria continues to maintain a high standard of cleanliness throughout all of its facilities. Employees and residents should wear facial masks, physical distance, and wash their hands, as recommended by the Maricopa County Public Health Department (MCPHD), the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The city website will continued to be updated as new information becomes available. Peoria residents can visit or get their questions answered at 623-773-7770 or
