GOVERNOR DUCEY DECLARES EMERGENCY IN ARIZONA
ARIZONA ARVC PROVIDES ONLINE RESOURCES FOR PARK OPERATORS
Governor Doug Ducey issued a Declaration of Emergency and an Executive Order on March 11th to provide health officials with tools and guidance to combat the continued spread of the novel coronavirus, which is known as COVID-19.
But as of April 1, Arizona’s privately owned campgrounds and RV parks faced no restrictions in their operations other than to comply with social distancing guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Additionally, on April 3, Gov. Ducey included campgrounds and RV parks as essential businesses.
“Everybody’s open,” said Jo Anne Mickelson, Arizona ARVC’s co-executive director. “The only businesses that have closed are bars and gymnasiums. Restaurants can stay open so long as they only provide food to go.”
However, because conditions are changing rapidly, Arizona ARVC recommends that park operators regularly monitor the RV Industry Association’s Covid-19 Resources Page, which provides links to the most up to date information on COVID-19 actions and recommendations at the state and federal levels.
