If someone in your family has tested positive for COVID-19, keep the entire household at home and contact your medical provider.

Expiration dates on Arizona driver licenses have been delayed.

Statewide closures of Arizona schools has been extended through the balance of the current school year.

Avoid contact with others.

Do not travel while sick.

Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing.

Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol immediately after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose.

If you need to seek medical care, before going to your doctor’s office, call ahead and tell them about your recent travel and your symptoms.
