There is no testing blitz scheduled for this weekend. If another testing blitz is scheduled by the State we will make sure to update you and provide information. The Fort Tuthill Site continues to operate Monday through Friday from 10am to 3pm. A healthcare order is required, however a provider is onsite for those individuals that are symptomatic and do not have insurance or a provider. There continues to be limits with testing supplies throughout the State. We will provide information as soon as possible on testing availability.
It is possible in the next week or two the Kaibab and Coconino National Forest will move to Stage 2 restrictions given dry conditions.
