Governor rescinds executive orders – here’s what that means in Scottsdale. Gov. Ducey issued an executive order yesterday that rescinds his previous executive orders concerning the COVID-19 global pandemic. The governor’s order also preempts the countywide face covering order, and Scottsdale's local face covering requirement.
Face coverings will still be required inside the city’s municipal buildings and facilities, including libraries, One Civic Center and City Hall.
Businesses and establishments can put their own rules into place and refuse service to customers who do not follow them. The city encourages residents to stay informed about the level of spread of COVID-19, and to take advantage of opportunities to be vaccinated against the disease.
While the requirements are changing, the medical advice is not: we should all continue to do things to keep ourselves, our neighbors and our families healthy: mask up when you can’t keep your distance, avoid crowds and get vaccinated.

Do the current vaccines work on new variant strains? The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other scientific partners are actively investigating the effectiveness of currently authorized vaccines against emerging variants.
