 Arizonans are at “heightened risk” for new coronavirus and state health officials are particularly worried about older adults, including those in nursing homes.

“Arizonans should be concerned about the possibility of getting COVID-19,” Dr. Cara Christ, the Arizona Department of Health Services director, said Monday. “I would say that the risk to Arizonans is heightened. … Act like everyone has it.”

In light of news that there had been community spread of COVID-19 in Arizona, Christ and Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey briefed reporters in a joint press conference about new precautions the state is taking, specifically with older adults and people with serious health conditions, including diabetes, heart disease and lung problems.

Ducey pledged transparency from the state.
