Arizonans learned this week that the state’s stay-at-home order will remain in place through May 15. But Gov. Doug Ducey also modified his order and gave retailers the option to gradually reopen beginning May 4. The governor’s plan to restart the economy in phases received praise from the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry which chamber president Glenn Hamer discussed with Lorraine Rivera.
“We really appreciate that the governor has been data driven and his first priority has been to protect the health of Arizonans,” Hamer said. “There’s unfortunately incredible pain out there, we recognize that. But what we don’t want to see is we go faster than is prudent and we take two steps forward and 10 steps backward.”
