Governor Issues New Guidelines for Fighting COVID-19

Date: June 18, 2020

Requirements for restaurants, bars, and businesses released

At a June 17 news conference, Gov. Doug Ducey unveiled a new executive order outlining further efforts to combat the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Increases in people testing positive for COVID-19 are particularly pronounced in Santa Cruz County (31 percent) and Yuma County (20 percent). By comparison, Yavapai County had only a 3% jump.

Joining the governor at the news conference were Cara Christ, director of the Arizona Dept. of Health Services, and Major General Michael McGuire of the Arizona National Guard.

“We recommend all Arizonans wear a face mask,” implored Governor Ducey. Section 4 of his executive order states “a county, city or town may, based on conditions in its jurisdiction, adopt policies regarding the wearing of face coverings in public for the purpose of mitigating the spread of COVID-19. Any enforcement of such a policy shall focus first on educating and working to promote best practices to accomplish the goal of mitigation.”

In relation to the executive order, the state also issued two guideline documents, Requirements for Restaurants and Bars Providing Dine-In Services and Requirements For Businesses.

NFIB highly recommends its members acquaint themselves with both documents.
