Arizona eases coronavirus restrictions
Gov. Doug Ducey joined other governors in lifting the restrictions, signing an executive order on Friday that ends business capacity limits and will allow Major League Baseball to host spring training games.
Today, Governor Ducey issued Decree 2021-05. It removes the capacity limitation imposed on some facilities, but requires all other mitigation strategies to remain in effect. This therefore includes a physical distance of at least six feet, ensuring clients and staff wear masks, improved infection and disinfection or disinfection and sanitation protocols. And it also allows spring training and major league sports to operate with an approved plan of mitigation strategies. We will continue to monitor. I don’t know if we would override the capacity issues if we start to see a spike, because I think the other thing that we have at the same time is that we will continue to see accelerated delivery of the vaccine, and hopefully that by the summer, as long as there are no manufacturing or federal transportation issues, we hope to have enough vaccines in the community for anyone who wants one.
