Arizona Doug Ducey has imposed a stay-at-home order to slow the spread of the new coronavirus. But he said grocery stores, pharmacies and other essential services will remain open.
The governor said he took the action Monday after the state’s top health director said it was necessary to slow the spread of the COVID-19 disease caused by the virus.
The governor said the order takes effect at 5 p.m. Tuesday, March 31 for all activity that is not essential.
Under the Executive Order, Arizonans shall limit their time away from their place of residence or property, except:
To conduct or participate in essential activities, and/or;
For employment, to volunteer or participate in essential functions; or
To utilize any services or products provided by essential business services;
And for employment if as a sole proprietor or family owned business, work is conducted in a separate office space from your home and the business is not open to serve the public.
