As Arizona slows begins to reopen its economy, Gov. Doug Ducey said Monday that businesses such as barbershops and salons can begin reopening as soon as Friday, May 8.
“We’re making decisions with the confidence that we are going in the right direction,” Ducey said at a press conference, during which he also announced that restaurants can begin offering dine-in service again on Monday, May 11.
The reopening of barbershops and salons as well as restaurant dining rooms comes with restrictions, however, as businesses will be required to limit occupancy and implement social distancing measures among other various safety protocols.
“Public health has been the top concern and it will remain the top concern,” Ducey added.
It’s unclear as to when gyms and pools will be allowed to reopen, though the governor did mention that announcement regarding those types of businesses will be coming later this month.
