Queen Creek continues phased approach to reopening in-person services

Posted

Following state and federal guidelines, the Town of Queen Creek took a series of steps in March to help slow the spread of COVID-19. During this time, the town worked to develop a phased reopening of in-person services.

Similar to the state of Arizona, the town is currently in phase one, which includes continuing to offer services online and over the phone. Phase one also included reopening park amenities in mid-May in alignment with the governor’s actions, according to a release.

The town continues to evaluate state and federal guidelines, and is prepared to enter phase two on Monday, June 1. Phase two includes reopening town buildings with safety measures in place. The lobbies will allow for physical distancing of 6 feet, provide plexiglass between the public and staff, with hand sanitizer available at the counters.

The town offers 24/7 access to a number of services and resources online at QueenCreek.org. Additionally, the public can access town services by calling 480-358-3000.

Phase two also includes:

  • Resuming bulk trash collection
  • Resuming curbside recycling collection
  • Opening the Queen Creek Recycling Center
  • Resume ramada and room rentals
  • Open registration for Special Interest Classes that comply with CDC guidelines
  • Begin taking reservations for events held on Town property
  • In-person utility payments by credit card (in-person cash and check payments will be directed to the drop box. Payments can continue to be made online, over the phone or by mail).

All reservations, programs and events on town property should adhere to CDC guidelines, the release states.

Signage with CDC guidelines have been posted in town parks and will be placed in front of town buildings:

  • Stay home if you are sick
  • Avoid gatherings of 10 or more people
  • Maintain at least 6 feet from others
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Cover your cough/sneeze

The town offers a number of online services and resources at queencreek.org, including:

  • Pay your utility bill
