Have friends flying in from Fort Worth? Roanoke Va.? Or even Lesterville, S.D.?

Well, they may not be able to come to your house to visit.

You can, however, probably go golfing with them if that’s what you enjoy.

Ducey’s directive does allow people to leave their area of self-quarantine for “essential services.” And under an earlier gubernatorial order, that includes outdoor activities like golf.

But they can’t stay with you, as the order says those affected “shall refrain from isolating or self-quarantining with family members or friends who did not travel.”

In describing his order on Tuesday, the governor specifically mentioned anyone flying in from Connecticut, New Jersey or New York. And gubernatorial press aide Patrick Ptak said that, based on the designations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, that means anyone from anywhere in those three states, not just those coming from the New York City area.

But Ducey’s order also says it applies to anyone from an area with “significant community spread.”

Here’s where it gets even more complex.
