Today, Governor Ducey gave an update on COVID-19 in Arizona and provided more information on when businesses can begin opening. Read / watch here.
His essential message is that Arizona is following a data-driven approach to opening businesses that relies on a downward trend of new cases and the capacity of our hospitals to take on new patients. The good news is that Arizona is trending in the right direction and will begin opening businesses May 11. The first wave will include barbershops and salons, followed closely by dine-in restaurants. There is still no plan yet for gyms to reopen, however, Ducey indicated more information would come soon.
So, we can all get our hair back in shape and get fed, then get ready to get back in the gym! We wish there was more definitive news to give you at this point, but the good news is it appears we’re on a path to get back soon.
