KINGMAN – The City of Kingman is making adjustments to comply with additional coronavirus closure guidance released by Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, which applies to essential services and recreational activities.

Ducey ordered barbers, spas, tattoo parlors and related services to cease operations no later than 5 p.m. Saturday, April 4.

The following services should cease operations no later than 5 p.m. Saturday, April 4, as they cannot comply with social-distancing guidelines: Barbers; cosmetology, hairstyling, nail salons and aesthetic salons; tanning salons; tattoo parlors; spas; and massage parlors.

The following recreation services should also cease operations by 5 p.m. Saturday, April 4: Amenities at public parks that don’t allow for the recommended physical distancing of 6 feet, or proper hygiene. Those include basketball courts, splash pads, playgrounds and public restrooms. However, public parks “shall remain open to the greatest extent possible,” according to a news release from the Governor’s Office.

Communal pools, like those at hotels, condominiums, apartment complexes and parks, will also close. However, the release notes that they should still be maintained under environmental and public health rules and guidelines. Swap meets will also need to cease operations.

As a result, the City of Kingman announced in a news release that Parks and Recreation will close park restrooms, playgrounds, basketball courts and ramada areas. City team members and staff at Cerbat Cliffs Golf Course will continue sanitizing equipment, carts and touch points. Access to the pro shop and grill has also been limited.

“Mayors from around the state, including myself, have been working with the Governor’s Office for more clarification regarding ‘essential businesses,’ and what those closures should look like, in order to follow CDC guidelines,” said Kingman Mayor Jen Miles in a news release. “These steps are vitally important in slowing the spread of the coronavirus. We ask everyone to adhere to the new restrictions so that we can save lives and support our healthcare professionals and system."
