After mounting criticism, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey’s chief of staff has promised to update guidance on what Ducey’s social distancing order means to businesses such as nail and hair salons that must have close contact with customers.

The Republican governor repeatedly said during a town hall broadcast Thursday night that salons and barbershops were not included in his list of “essential services” that can remain open. But the governor's March 23 news release announcing the list specifically included those businesses. Chief of Staff Daniel Scarpinato promised to issue clarified rules Friday afternoon.
