Non-Essential Businesses In Tucson To Be Shut Down For Three Weeks

Tucson Mayor Regina Romero set new restrictions in place for the city.

On Friday, Romero signed a proclamation ordering business not deemed essential to close at 8 a.m. on Saturday, calling for a shutdown across the city through April 17.

Romero also strongly advised some businesses Gov. Doug Ducey deemed essential, such as hair and nail salons, spas, barber shops and other “personal hygiene services” shut down for the same timeframe.

“Although the Governor’s Executive Order defines these businesses as ‘essential,’ I am recommending that they close because they involve human interactions that conflict with CDC guidance on social distancing,” Romero said in a tweet.

On Monday, Ducey outlined an expansive list of essential services that cities and counties are prohibited from shuttering. His action came after mayors took the lead in closing bars and gyms and prohibiting dine-in service at restaurants.
