What to Consider About Wearing a Mask.

Gov. Doug Ducey’s “Stay Home. Stay Healthy. Stay Connected.” Executive Order:

• Stay Home: increase physical distancing, stop the spread of COVID-19 and protect yourself and your family. Stay home unless you are leaving for an essential service.

• Stay Healthy: remain physically active, wash your hands, use a tissue when you sneeze, and maintain healthy habits.

• Stay Connected: find alternative ways to stay connected to family and friends by using technology. We’ll get through this together.
