Today in Southern Arizona COVID-19 news:
• Gov. Doug Ducey has ordered a statewide stay-at-home order
beginning at 5 p.m. Tuesday, March 31, although people may still shop for groceries, and other supplies; go to work at a business the governor has deemed essential; visit family and friends who need help; and visit the great outdoors. Just stay at home as much as possible, folks. This is no joke. Ducey also joined Superintendent of Public Instruction Kathy Hoffman to announce that Arizona schools would remain closed

left vacant by the death of Supervisor Richard Elias.
