Governor Doug Ducey issued an Executive Order to continue Arizona’s gradual economic reopening, allowing retail businesses to begin partial operations May 4, 2020, followed by expanded in-person operations on May 8, 2020. Retailers must implement social distancing and sanitation measures established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the U.S. Department of Labor and the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS).
Occupancy percentage limitations expire. Retailers must continue to implement physical distancing and mask protocols.
Retail businesses will be allowed to sell goods through delivery service, window service, walk-up service, drive-through service, drive-up service or curbside delivery provided they establish and implement sanitation and physical distancing measures. This updated guidance applies to the act of selling goods, not services.
