Ducey To Lift Arizona Stay-At-Home Order


Gov. Doug Ducey will allow his stay-at-home order to expire Friday as restrictions in place in the state to slow the spread of COVID-19 continue to loosen.

He said during a media briefing Tuesday that a new order, which goes into effect Saturday, encourages vulnerable populations to remain home. In addition, beginning Wednesday gyms, pools and spas in Arizona will be allowed to reopen.

Ducey encouraged those working from home to continue to do so, and said employees can begin to return to work in phases. In addition, he said the state will ramp up testing in nursing homes and Arizona prisons. Retail shopping and dine-in service in restaurants have already been allowed to resume as long as sanitary and physical distancing measures are in place.
