The authorities in Arizona had a very strict take on the COVID-19. For this reason, a shelter-in-place order was brought into effect on March 31, 2020.
Also, the “Stay Home, Stay Healthy, Stay Connected” order were extended till April 30 as per the orders of the Governor of Arizona, although many businesses were listed essential and exempted from the order, including construction.
However, following the agenda of phased opening in the state, the recent executive orders from May 4 have lifted restrictions on restaurants, cosmetologists, and barber shops providing a greater sense of relief but still under the practice of social distancing rules.
