Governor Doug Ducey rolls back several COVID-19 safety measures as vaccinations increase

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey has announced major rollbacks in COVID-19 restrictions for the state after officials announced that three million residents have been vaccinated on March 25. Governor Ducey stated the following,

“We’ve now hit 3 MILLION+ doses of vaccine administered, and 1,185,986 Arizonans have been fully vaccinated. We’re experiencing 10 weeks of declining cases, hospitalizations are at the lowest level since Sept/Oct and vaccinations are open to all Arizonans 16 and up.  With this positive progress on the public health front, we’re updating several COVID19 measures on events, businesses and local ordinances.

As we’ve said all along, distribution of the vaccine is our best path to getting back to normal, and I want to thank the millions of Arizonans who have rolled up their sleeves to make the distribution and uptake so successful.

In Arizona, we never did a shutdown, so it’s impossible to have a grand reopening. Instead, we are continuing to take reasonable, safe and sensible steps. The measures put in place last summer allowed Arizona to fight back COVID19. I want to thank the local leaders who supported these efforts with their own measures, and the businesses that implemented them.

Today we are in a different spot, and we are also a lot smarter. I’m confident Arizona’s businesses and citizens will continue to act responsibly as we gradually get back to normal.

AND remember: Practice the fundamentals. Wear a mask, practice physical distancing, stay home when sick, wash your hands frequently AND roll up your sleeve and get the vaccine — it’s safe, effective and free.”
