PHOENIX — The city of Flagstaff has taken action to limit the public’s access to local restaurants as a means of combating the spread of coronavirus.

Flagstaff Mayor Coral Evans’ proclamation to protect life and property applies to restaurants, food courts, cafes, coffeehouses, retail food facilities, and other similar businesses which will be prohibited from serving food and beverages for on-site consumption.

The new restrictions take effect Tuesday at 8 p.m. and will remain until April 1 at 11:59 p.m.

Restaurants have been encouraged to offer their food and beverages to the public via drive-through, delivery or pickup options.

Evans’ proclamation does not apply to grocery stores, pharmacies, food banks, food pantries, cafeterias, restaurants located inside health care facilities or vendors located within Flagstaff Pulliam Airport.

While these restrictions are in place, the downtown paid parking program will also be suspended.
