TUCSON, Ariz. — Pima County is creating a re-opening task force by the end of the week.

It's called "Pima County Back to Business".

In a 4/22 memo, administrator Chuck Huckleberry stated businesses will begin to reopen in a limited, phased manner.

The task force will establish the framework of hygiene and social distancing standards.

PCB2B will include one appointed member of the Small Business Commission from each Supervisor District. It will also include representatives from restaurants, hotels and resorts, chambers of commerce, gyms, daycares, personal hygiene services, area attractions, film and live performance theatres, and event centers.

Other industries may be added later.

Subcommittees may include:
The Roadmap to Recovery
Expediting Government Regulation
Employee Health and Wellness Guidance
Community Updates

Huckleberry says county staff will work with the task force, all of which will be advised by public health agency professionals specializing in protection, infection control and disease prevention.

Huckleberry plans to provide more detail on the effort next week.
