Covid-19 Safety Plans

COVID-19 has impacted our community, mandating health and safety protocols, regulating business operations, and changing special event requirements related to logistics, layouts, queuing methods, capacities, and implementing new safety standards. Public health and safety is our top priority. While many restrictions on gatherings and activities remain in place as part of statewide efforts to curb the spread of COVID-19, some special events in Scottsdale have been approved under guidelines established by Arizona Governor Doug Ducey.

The Governor’s Executive Order 2020-43 (extended by Executive Order 2020-52) prohibits “organized public events” of more than 50 people unless the city has approved the event and adequate safety precautions are implemented, including physical distancing measures. This document explains the City’s interpretation and enforcement of the Governor’s Executive Order. The city approval process is in effect as long as the Executive Order is in effect. A safety plan is required as part of the special event permit application per the Governor’s Executive Order 2020-59 and is evaluated as part of the city’s decision to hold an organized public event of more than 50 people.
