PHOENIX — Governor Doug Ducey, Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction Kathy Hoffman, Arizona Department of Health Services Director Dr. Cara Christ and Arizona Department of Emergency and Military Affairs Major General Michael T. McGuire today held a briefing to share COVID-19 updates and the latest on Arizona’s actions to protect public health and safety.

Governor Ducey announced the Arizona: Open for Learning plan to provide maximum options for Arizona families, ensure students receive a full academic year of education, invest a total of $440 million in federal dollars to our schools, and give local school leaders the flexibility and public health guidance to make the best decisions for their students. The plan was developed in consultation with school leaders from across the state, school advocates and Superintendent Hoffman.

The Governor also announced the extension of an Executive Order pausing operations on gyms, bars, nightclubs, movie theaters, water parks, and tubing. The order also prohibits large events and enables local law authorities to take immediate enforcement action to ensure compliance with the order. The pause of these operations will be reviewed for repeal or revision every two weeks.

Additionally, the Governor announced a statewide campaign developed in partnership with Arizona advertising and public relations firms to promote the use of masks and other important precautions to contain the spread of COVID-19. This first-of-its-kind collaboration will feature creative concepts in English and Spanish developed by Arizona’s leaders in advertising supported by $3 million from the Governor’s Office for distribution across media platforms statewide.
