Ducey Executive Order Halts Certain Businesses; Delays School Start

Governor Doug Ducey has “signed an Executive Order to prohibit large gatherings, cease the issuance of new special event licenses and pause the operations of bars, gyms, movie theaters, waterparks and tubing rentals. The pause of these business operations takes effect at 8:00 p.m. today, Monday, June 29 and is in effect for one month.” At this point, the Order lasts until July 27th. The new start date for Arizona’s schools has been pushed to Aug. 17th, but it’s noted, “Schools will be able to conduct distance learning before then should they choose.”
