During a news conference, Governor Doug Ducey announced that Arizona’s stay-at-home order will be extended to May 15, with modifications.

According to an executive order issued to amend the original stay-at-home order, officially titled as the ‘Stay home, Stay healthy, Stay connected’ policy, retailers not classified as an essential business may, starting May 4, operate through delivery service and other means that do not entail in-store sales.

On May 8, non-essential retailers can sell items to customers in-store.

Plans will also be announced next week on a return to dine-in operations for restaurants. Gov. Ducey did say during the news conference that in a best-case scenario, restaurants could reopen by May 12.

‘We will continue, in Arizona, to put public health first,’ Gov. Ducey said.

The executive order states no county, city, or town may issue orders, rules, or regulations that conflict with the executive order.

The Republican governor is holding the news conference just one day prior to the original expiration date of his stay-at-home order that started March 31.

Gov. Ducey said the return to normalcy will be gradual and phased in, based on CDC and health expert recommendations through May and June, and will balance public health and returning stronger.”
