Ducey also postponed the start of the semester until August 17. During the announcement, he and the Arizonans asked them to wear masks and stay at home where possible to reduce the risk of transmission.
Dusi said: “Remember, you are safer at home.” “If you don’t need to go out, please don’t go out.”
He said that if the number of COVID-19 cases did not drop significantly, his order could be extended.
Ducey stayed at home. After the business closure expired in May, most bars and nightclubs reopened. According to the Associated Press, bars that do not serve food are allowed to reopen, which is a loophole that causes crowding in the venue and there are few ways to socialize.
Arizona is one of the few states to re-impose restrictions due to a surge in coronavirus cases after reopening the economy. Texas Governor Greg Abbott ordered the bar to close and reduce restaurant services after its coronavirus infection rate reached nearly 12%.
During the surge of coronaviruses, other states are reducing their planned reopening hours.
