The Prescott Valley Police Department, 7601 E. Skoog Blvd., reopened its lobby on May 6 with the following provisions put in place to protect visitors and staff from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Those measures, until further notice, include:

• Encouraging the wearing of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE), albeit not mandatory. No more than three visitors are allowed into the lobby at any one time. Physical distancing between all persons will be enforced by staffers and signage. Physical-distancing markers have been placed on the floor in the lobby in 6-foot increments.

• Keeping the lobby’s bathrooms locked.

• Conducting no fingerprinting services for the public. Fingerprinting will be done at the UPS Store, 7760 E. Highway 69, next to the Safeway grocery store in Prescott Valley.

• Disallowing the disposal of drugs or prescriptions. Rather, drugs or prescriptions may be dropped off at Walgreens, 2880 N. Centre Court, in Prescott Valley. Cash will not be exchanged.

• Taking the temperatures of all visitors invited into the building. To get into the lobby, visitors will have their temperatures taken by an employee, who will meet them at a prearranged location outside of the building.

Visitors showing symptoms of illness, such as repeated coughing and/or sneezing, will be asked to leave and should call 928-772-9261 for service. Those who are running a fever of 100.4 degrees or higher, or those who are visibly ill, will not be allowed into the building.
