PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey's office says he and his wife have left the state for a few days to celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary.

Ducey Chief of Staff Daniel Scarpinato said Thursday in a statement that “Ducey was “plugged" in and in constant communication with our office and the White House on the election results, COVID-19 and other state issues," KNXV-TV .

Secretary of State Katie Hobbs and other statewide elected officials were notified from the state, per protocol. Arizona's secretary of state automatically becomes acting governor when the governor leaves the state.

Ducey is a Republican. Hobbs is a Democrat.

Ducey last conducted a COVID-19 briefing since October 29 and he has not made any public appearances since the Nov. 3 election.

On Tuesday, Ducey released a video on social media about the increase in COVID-19 cases. He urged Arizonans to be careful.

Ducey lives in  the Town of Paradise Valley.
