Arizona is joining other red states in easing some coronavirus restrictions statewide. On Friday, Gov. Doug Ducey (R-Ariz.) announced he’s lifting capacity limits on restaurants, bars, gyms, theaters, water parks and bowling alleys.

The order also allows Major League Baseball to hold spring training and prevents municipal leaders from implementing any strict public health measures that could lead to business closures.

Dr. Cara Christ, director of the Arizona Department of Health Services, cited a seven week decline in new cases and the distribution of over two million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.

“So I work very closely with the governor’s team on these mitigation strategies, and really felt that the mitigation strategies that we had outlined in our documents for each of those individual establishments could be maintained without the capacity limits,” Christ stated.

While a statewide mask mandate was never imposed in Arizona, local government mandates and social distancing requirements will remain unchanged.
