Wearing masks for indoor events at Esperanza is optional.

Esperanza is continuing to follow CDC guidelines. As of Feb. 25, 2022, the CDC is using “COVID-19 Community Levels” to help communities decide what prevention steps to take.

As of 3/20/2022,Maricopa County is considered LOW level. CDC guidelines for LOW level are as follows:

  • If you are at high risk for severe illness, talk to your healthcare provider about whether you need to wear a mask and take other precautions
  • Stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines
  • Get tested if you have symptoms

People may choose to mask at any time.  People with symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19 should wear a mask.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation during the last two years. We will continue to monitor the situation and continue following CDC guidance as they are updated.
