Flagstaff Mayor Coral Evans issued a wide-reaching proclamation Monday night limiting dining at restaurants and closing most gathering places in an effort to fight the spread of the new coronavirus.
Doing so makes Flagstaff the first city in Arizona to take such measures. Tempe is expected to vote Thursday to give its mayor greater power.
The Flagstaff proclamation bans all restaurants, cafes, coffeehouses and the like from serving food and drinks for consumption on-site, and bans people from remaining on-site to eat or drink. Instead, businesses can offerdelivery, drive-thru and to-go options.
