Yesterday, Governor Ducey issued an executive order stating that bars, restaurants, movie theaters and gyms shall close access to the public in counties with confirmed cases of COVID-19. Yavapai county has a presumptive confirmed case, which was from Sedona. The presumptive is considered the same as a positive confirmed. This means that these businesses will have to close at the end of the business day today, Friday March 20.
Gyms, bars, and movie theaters will be expected to close. Restaurants will be required to close their dine-in options. Restaurants will be able to serve liquor and spirits, if accompanying a food order.
A copy of the Governor’s declaration is attached.
