The governor of Arizona announced on Monday that it had “suspended one month” for certain businesses in response to the surge in coronavirus cases in the state.
Republican Governor Doug Ducey ordered bars, nightclubs, gymnasiums, cinemas and water parks to close again at least 30 days from Monday evening.
A ban on gatherings of more than 50 people has also been reestablished.
Dusi said: “We can’t imagine this virus will disappear on its own.”
In mid-May, Grand Canyon State left the whole-house service, but since then COVID-19 infections have skyrocketed.
A record 3,858 new cases were reported on Sunday, the most in a single day in the state. The capacity of Jeonju Hospital on Sunday was 84%.
Although many districts plan to begin the school year in late July or early August, Dusi ordered public schools to be postponed until at least August 17.
The governor urged Arizona people to keep their distance from each other in public, but has not issued a state order requiring people to wear masks.
Faced with this situation, the three states of Florida, California and Texas also postponed the reopening due to an increase in the number of cases.
