Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey announced on Friday he will be rescinding 25 pandemic-related executive orders following action by the Arizona Legislature to codify into law many of the policies enacted by the orders.
“Throughout the pandemic, we took action to protect Arizonans and their individual freedoms, like banning vaccine passports and protecting access to state universities,” Ducey said in a press release. “Working with our Legislature, we’ve enacted these reforms into law.”
Among the executive orders that were rescinded on Thursday include allowing caregiver trainees to utilize on-the-job training to meet a certification program, ensuring cost-sharing requirements for the COVID-19 vaccine are waived.
