Arizona Executive Order Stay at Home

 |  Arizona, Coronavirus, COVID-19, Social distancing

On March 30, 2020, at 2:00 p.m., Arizona Governor Doug Ducey announced Arizona’s version of a stay-at-home executive order. Followed by a letter from Cara Christ, Director, Department of Health Services, she recommended enhanced physical distancing based on latest data from her epidemiologists and President Trump’s announcement on March 29, 2020, where federal distancing guidelines are extended until April 30, 2020.
The order exempts essential business, outlined in a previous Executive Order on March 23, 2020 from the Governor, as well as essential activities, which includes outdoor activities.
Unique to Arizona, the Governor’s order includes a strong focus on mental health and encourages Arizonans to participate in outdoor activities in accordance with social distancing measures. Stressing the need for “social connectedness,” the order takes into consideration the senior population and people struggling with depression and suicide.
The order takes effect March 31, 2020, at 5:00 p.m., and is effective until April 30, 2020.
