For most people, the coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough, that clear up in two to three weeks. But it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia, and death for some people, especially older adults and people with existing health problems.

Arizona’s stay-at-home order expired Friday, though the state will be under Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey’s new executive order “Stay Healthy, Return Smarter, Return Stronger.”

Theaters were allowed to reopen today, Saturday, May 16.

For Gov. Ducey’s guidance on restaurants, barbers an cosmetologists, retail establishments, pools, gyms and fitness providers, spas, places of worship and casinos, go to the Arizona Department Of Health Services website or the Office of the Governor website.
