Arizona Retail Stores To Resume Limited Operations Monday


Governor Doug Ducey’s office has released details about his plan to ease restrictions on retail stores amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Beginning Mon, May 4 businesses can offer delivery, walk-up and curbside pickup options for customers. Later that week on Fri, May 8 retail stores will be able to partially open as long as sanitation and physical distancing measures are followed based on the guidance of the U.S. Department of Labor and the Arizona Department of Health Services.

“As we breathe life back into our businesses, we want to make sure we’re taking common sense precautions to keep employees and customers safe,” said Governor Ducey in a press release. “Taking these responsible steps that prioritize public health will help grow confidence and ensure we don’t just reopen all businesses, but do it successfully. I’m grateful to all the business owners and employees putting safety first and providing their feedback as we take continued steps to reenergize Arizona’s economy.”

In addition, Ducey says he wants to resume limited dine-in service at restaurants and that his office will release details in the coming days. Ducey this week extended his statewide stay-at-home order until May 15th.
