KINGMAN, Ariz. – Beginning Monday, March 23, 2020, all city buildings (except the Municipal Courthouse) will be closed to all public access until at least April 6, 2020. Based on guidelines issued by the President of the United States, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Arizona State Department of Health Services, the continued spread of COVID-19 is posing an increased public health risk, by not following those guidelines.

The CDC, the President and Governor Ducey’s office now recommend no events of ten or more people for the next eight weeks. People are being asked to avoid gyms, bars, clubs, movie theaters, and dine-in restaurants (you can still support local businesses and order food for pickup or delivery, instead). City team members will still be onsite working over email and taking phone calls for those customers that need to pay bills, get building inspections, etc. Dispatch, Fire and Police Services will operate at normal levels. Trash pickup will remain, but KART services will be reduced. The Cerbat Cliffs Golf Course and Recreation Services will remain open.
