APRIL 22, 2020:  Criteria HAS NOT been met by AZ to start Phase 1 of re-opening states and lifting stay-at-home restrictions.
The White House’s guidelines for reopening call for 14 days of a downward trajectory of influenza-like illnesses and COVID-like syndrome cases. They say there should be a downward trajectory of documented cases or for positive tests as a percent of total tests for 14 days, with a flat or increasing volume of tests. Hospitals should be able to treat all patients without crisis care and have robust testing in place for at-risk health care workers, including antibody testing.

Arizona needs more testing, better contact tracing and a clear decline in cases before it can reopen businesses, public health experts say.
