Governor Ducey Issues Stay-At-Home Order

Client Update: COVID-19

Dear Friends of the Firm:

We hope that you and your family, friends, and colleagues are staying safe and remaining positive during these trying times. As we all embark upon this new reality, we wanted to check in and see how you are doing, provide you with helpful resources, and assure you that we’re in this together.   

On March 20, 2020, Governor Ducey issued a state-wide stay-at-home executive order that will take effect upon close of business Tuesday and apply through at least April 30.

Already, things have shut down to a large degree, the Republican leader said at an afternoon press briefing, with Department of Health Services Director Dr. Cara Christ at his side. They're going to shut down even further.

The Governor indicated that he did not consider the mandate a "shelter-in-place" order, however, saying he'd reserve that phrase for nuclear attacks or active shooter situations.

Our goal here is to protect the lives of those we love most and to ensure the health care system has the capacity to provide them with the care and comfort they deserve, he said. We want people to stay at home.
