Governor Doug Ducey says his “stay-at-home” executive order is staying put for now. However, he did make an adjustment yesterday. He says as of May 1st, elective surgeries can resume at hospitals in Arizona. Ducey says that’s because hospitals are reporting they now have enough protective gear to treat COVID-19 patients. Governor Ducey still has not made a decision on whether or not to re-open non-essential businesses in the state. Flagstaff Mayor Coral Evans joined Peter and Dave Thursday morning on KAFF Country 93.5/AM 930 and says she’s waiting like the rest of us. “We are directly aligned with the state, so all of the mayors are waiting to see what the governor is going to do.” She adds, “the governor’s executive order trumps all of the proclamations that mayors around Arizona have done.” The governor says reopening businesses must come in phases, guided by data and mitigation efforts to prevent a resurgence of the virus. The stay at home order remains in effect for Arizona until April 30th.
