State to inspect water park resorts for compliance with emergency orders

Big Sur in Tempe (closed temporarily)

Some Arizona resorts could find themselves facing orders to shut down part of their water parks.

State Health Director Cara Christ said Monday she is sending inspectors to these resorts to find out exactly how they are operating their water features. And Christ told Capitol Media Services that those that are operating in an unsafe fashion will face orders to close.

Part of the issue, she said, is that several resorts are advertising to get day visitors to their facilities to generate additional cash. That includes not just the pools but also the water slides, hot tubs and “lazy river” floats.

But Christ also said that even those facilities that limit attendance to guests could wind up in trouble — and with an order to limit activities — if they are operating in ways that allow people to gather together in a way that could spread the virus.
