 Governor announces next steps for reopening Arizona

This afternoon, Gov. Doug Ducey issued an executive order allowing cosmetologists and barber shops to resume appointment-based services this Friday, May 8—as long as they limit occupancy, implement social distancing measures, up sanitation protocols and provide cloth masks to employees. Restaurants and coffee shops will be able to resume dine-in services with physical distancing measures on Monday, May 11. They must also limit occupancy and physically distance diners, along with checking employees for COVID-19 symptoms before their shifts.

In addition, the governor issued an executive order requiring expanded reporting of COVID-19-related information to residents of long-term care facilities, as well as their next of kin and guardians and prospective residents.

The Governor’s Office also issued additional guidance for retail businesses, which have been given the green light to resume partial operations this week. Next steps for reopening gyms and pools will be announced in the coming days.
