Earlier in August, AZDHS released benchmarks and requirements for businesses that were ordered to close by Governer Doug Ducey. While the executive order remains in effect, there are guidelines for a phased reopening as the number of COVID-19 cases begins to decline.

There are two key components to resuming business operations:

1. Quality of the establishment’s implementation of COVID-19 mitigation strategies.

2. Level of spread occurring in the community, outlined in these three benchmarks:

- Two weeks below 100 cases per 100,000

- Two weeks with percent positivity below 10%

- Two weeks with hospital visits due to COVID-like illness below 10%
