    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
    • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
    • Stay home when you are sick.
    • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
    • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

                Updates will continue to be provided at https://www.mesaaz.gov/city-hall/coronavirus  and our City of Mesa social media channels.

As a natural party-planner, it was fitting that when Dyan joined the City of Mesa in 1996 it was as an Event Coordinator at the Mesa Convention Center. Over the years, Dyan has performed sales, marketing, sponsorship, project management and supervisory duties for the Parks, Recreation and Community Facilities Department.  Currently, Dyan is responsible for the operations and oversight of the Department’s commercial facilities including the Mesa Convention Center, Mesa Amphitheatre, Mesa Cemetery and Dobson Ranch Golf Course. Dyan has a focus on creating an outstanding customer experience, and staff development. If you don’t find her checking the turf and trees at the Cemetery or Golf Course, she’ll likely be talking with vendors at the Mesa Convention Center, or enjoying music with the crowds at the Mesa Amphitheatre. Dyan has a degree in Communications from Penn State University.
