As voices on the right grow louder in demanding that the economic lockdown come to an end, Gov. Doug Ducey on Monday expressed an eagerness to reopen Arizona’s economy, but said he won’t do so until it’s safe.

“Safety and our economy go hand in hand. From my vantage point, I want to get the economy moving and people back to work as soon as possible — when it is safe and healthy for people to do so,” Ducey said in a series of tweets on Monday afternoon.

The governor emphasized that his stay-home order, dubbed “Stay Home, Stay Healthy, Stay Connected,” which ordered nonessential businesses closed and mandated that people practice social distancing outside their homes, is in effect until April 30. 

Ducey also said he and his administration will start working with representatives from economic sectors such as restaurants, retail and tourism to craft plans for Arizona’s economic recovery. Their input, along with advice from health officials, will help guide his decision on when to reopen the economy, he said.
