Dine-in at restaurants resumes May 11, barbers and salons re-open May 8

PHOENIX — Gov. Doug Ducey announced Monday more steps in the re-opening of Arizona’s economy.

This Friday, barbers and salons will be able to re-open with a number of public heath limitations in place, including reduced occupancy and making cloth face coverings available to employees and customers. Then on Monday, May 11, restaurants can begin offering dine-in service again, also with reduced occupancy and dining parties must be limited to no more than 10.

Restaurants must also continue to offer curbside service.

“If you want to say it’s been too cautious, I accept that,” Ducey said. “We’re talking about an illness and a virus that has been spreading rapidly, and we understand much more today than we did six weeks ago.”

The moves follow last week’s announcement that non-essential retail stores could partially re-open starting May 4, with increased services starting Friday, May 8.
