Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey has signed an executive order requiring Arizonans to stay home and non-essential businesses to close starting at 5 p.m. Tuesday night.

Grocery stores and pharmacies will remain open during the coronavirus pandemic, as will other essential businesses such as gas stations, health care facilities, and food production and distribution. Restaurants are limited to take out and delivery.

Residents may visit an essential business, conduct or volunteer in essential businesses or activities, and work in an office outside the home if the business is a sole proprietor or family business closed to the public.

Ducey said people should shop for food every week to avoid overbuying and emptying grocery store shelves.
