Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey addressed two big issues affecting Arizona during a news conference on Thursday: the ongoing protests in the wake of George Floyd’s death, and the rising number of coronavirus cases in our state. Thursday was the first time Ducey has spoken out publicly since imposing a statewide curfew over the weekend.
Governor Ducey announced on Twitter that after speaking with local leaders, he has declared a statewide Declaration of Emergency with a curfew in place starting at 8 p.m. Sunday until 5 a.m. and will expire at 5:00 a.m. on Monday, June 8 unless if is extended further.
