These orders come after Gov. Ducey’s June 29th executive order which shut down gyms, bars, water parks, movie theatres, and others.

“There could always be better communication,” said Bowers. Going on he said they would just like to know ahead of time how they can prepare. While also making sure their constituents are in the loop.

Both members of the Arizona Legislature would like to see such change going forward.
