Governor Doug Ducey, Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) Director Dr. Cara Christ and Arizona Department of Emergency and Military Affairs Major General Michael T. McGuire held a briefing today to provide the latest information on COVID-19. The Governor urged Arizonans to take responsible actions to help contain the spread of the virus — limit time away from home, practice physical distancing, wear a mask and follow ADHS health guidance.
“Arizonans and businesses across the state have worked for months to protect others and contain the spread of COVID-19 — and we can’t let up now,” said Governor Ducey. “Right now, Arizonans are safer at home. And when you’re away from home, don’t forget to limit social gatherings, stay six feet from others, wash your hands and wear a mask. These simple steps can make a big difference.”
Additionally, the Governor today issued an Executive Order extending the Good Samaritan order, which protects frontline health care workers responding to the COVID-19 outbreak.
