The Governor's order is titled "Stay Home, Stay Healthy, Stay Connected," and unique to Arizona, includes a strong focus on mental health. The order encourages Arizonans to participate in outdoor activities, as long as they are accompanied by social distancing measures. Additionally, it stresses the need for "social connectedness" -- a concern of public health officials, especially among our senior population and those struggling with depression and suicide. The order exempts essential business, outlined in a previous Executive Order last Monday from the Governor, as well as essential activities, which includes outdoor activities. The order takes effect Tuesday at 5 pm and is in effect until April 30.All of Governor Ducey's Executive Orders to date can be found HERE. Click HERE for list of "essential services."
