Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey’s executive order is in effect requiring residents to stay home unless they have an urgent need to go out for specific allowable purposes – such as grocery shopping, trips to the pharmacy or the bank, and to periodically exercise at a space of six feet apart from others.  The Attorney General has stated law enforcement’s goal is to educate and inform, however by state statute this order can be enforced, with an opportunity to comply.   Here’s the link to the Executive Order.
