Corona Virus: Reopening Precautions - Effective May 16, 2020


As Arizona reopens, here are some important guidelines to help keep us all healthy and safe!



On May 12, 2020, via Executive order 2020-36 entitled Stay Healthy, Return Smarter, Return
Stronger, the Governor rescinded the previously issued stay-at-home orders and permitted the
re-opening of commercial businesses, effective May 16, 2020.

The reopening authority is not without limitations, however. The order mandates that all
individuals must maximize physical distancing from one another. In addition —
Any business, whether for-profit or non-profit, institution, profession or entity that
physically operates in this state and serves the public or is an employer shall develop,
establish and implement policies based on guidance from the CDC, Department of Labor,
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and ADHS to limit and mitigate
the spread of COVID-19 including the following:

a. Promoting healthy hygiene practices;
b. Intensifying cleaning, disinfection and ventilation practices;
c. Monitoring for sickness;
d. Ensuring physical distancing;
e. Providing necessary protective equipment;
f. Allowing for and encouraging teleworking where feasible;
g. Providing plans, where possible, to return to work in phases; and
h. Limiting the congregation of groups of no more than 10 persons when feasible and in
relation to the size of the location.
