Arizona closes again

Restrictions are imposed for 30 days and will affect bars, gyms, cinemas, and water parks.

Bars and gyms in Arizona will again close for at least 30 days due to the coronavirus outbreak in that state, Governor Doug Ducey announced.

The month-long pause announced by Ducey, which will also affect cinemas and water parks, took effect on Monday evening.

The Governor also banned events involving more than 50 people, effectively banning mass celebrations on the occasion of Independence Day on July 4.

Arizona health authorities reported on Sunday that another 3,858 cases of coronavirus had been reported in the state.
