Governor Doug Ducey Thursday eased restrictions on elective surgeries and long-term care facilities. With vaccination efforts underway, Ducey says the state is able to roll back some limitations. His order Thursday provides hospitals with the flexibility to conduct elective surgeries. He says the state can now also help facilitate additional visitation as well as off-site visits for long-term care residents without the need for quarantine upon return. The number of COVID-19 cases is declining around Arizona.
