Due to the updated CDC guidance, beginning Monday, May 17, the Town of Fountain Hills announced that fully vaccinated individuals will no longer be required to wear face coverings in Town Hall, Community Center, and other town facilities and offices. This means that Town Council meetings will also be operating based on the new CDC recommendations. Though face coverings are no longer required if you are fully vaccinated, seating in the Council Chambers will remain physically distanced for the time being.
(A person is considered fully vaccinated against the coronavirus two weeks after getting the second Pfizer or Moderna shot or the same length of time after receiving the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.)
Below are applicable links from the CDC on its recommended guidance. https://www.cdc.gov/.../vaccines/pdfs/choosingSaferAct.pdf

The Town of Fountain Hills will hold the second Covid-19 vaccination event on Saturday, June 5, 2021, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Community Center located at 13001 N. La Montana Drive. The first vaccination event was held on May 1, and this is the second dose of the Moderna vaccine. In addition, children ages 12 and over are now eligible for vaccination, as well as those looking for their first vaccine and are encouraged to attend. These groups will receive the first dose of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine.

Due to concerns about the health and safety of its residents and employees relating to the COVID-19, also known as the Coronavirus, it is our responsibility to minimize the public exposure to the disease. Fountain Hills is working with partner agencies, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Maricopa Department of Public Health and the Arizona Department of Health Services, to follow their guidance as the situation evolves.
In an attempt to reduce the exposure and spread of COVID-19, Fountain Hills has taken the following steps and precautions over the next several weeks:
