Sierra Vista, AZ. 03/17/20. In accordance with the latest guidelines issued jointly by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the White House, the Nancy J. Brua Animal Care Center requests that people call for an appointment before stopping by for pet adoptions or services.
The change, which takes effect Wednesday, March 18, will allow staff to limit the number of visitors in the lobby area at any one time to 10 or fewer, as recommended in the latest round of CDC guidelines. The guidelines, in effect through March 27, are designed to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, by limiting interpersonal contact.
“The CDC-recommended guidelines are very fluid right now, but we hope to return to normal operating hours after March 27,” says Arleen Garcia, supervisor for the Animal Care Center. “We ask the public to please call before coming in to visit animals, process adoptions, license pets, or receive any other services we provide.”
