Arizona’s Governor Doug Ducey, in a press conference yesterday, is also urging state residents to remain vigilant in their safe practices while the virus continues to ravage the state. He said Arizona’s citizens are simply “safer at home” during the pandemic crisis. Ducey acknowledged that Arizona’s pandemic situation has gotten worse and said the worst is still to come.
