A group of eight Arizona health leaders is asking for immediate state actions on a worsening COVID-19 crisis, including a statewide curfew and no indoor dining at restaurants.
The group of chief medical officers wrote a letter dated Tuesday to Dr. Cara Christ, the Arizona Department of Health Services director, that asks for the state to take action on their suggested measures within the next 72 hours, keep them in place for the next 30 days, and then reassess them.
In addition to a statewide curfew, the health leaders, want the state to end indoor dining in restaurants, to prohibit group athletics and other things.
“If fewer Arizonans are infected with COVID‐19, we believe the state’s financial prosperity can rebound more quickly and we can collectively return to a more normal lifestyle,” the letter says.
