    Reopen Arizona. We have been lied to about this Illness with false facts and statistics. None of this adds up to the draconian measures that have been imposed upon us by the State of Arizona and in direct violation of our Constitutional Rights!! We have a right to earn a living and have a free market economy! Reopen Arizona for business! Save our small businesses and economy from sure ruin and disaster!!

    Right on. I want to see a review of the need and effectiveness of the 6 foot social distancing. I understand it was established for coughing and sneezing. Is this 6 foot still needed if there is no coughing or sneezing? Is it needed if you are wearing masks?
    I would like to see some real science and testing to review this rule.
