“Stay home, Stay healthy, Stay connected” – that’s what the state is asking of fellow Arizonans in the continued effort to slow the spread of COVID-19.

The latest Executive Order issued today by Governor Doug Ducey follows new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and comes at the recommendation of public health officials who are tracking data specific to Arizona. The Governor’s order promotes increased physical distancing, while encouraging social connectedness among citizens. It takes place at 5:00 p.m., March 31, 2020.

What this Means for Providers:

Home Health Agencies and In-Home Care Providers are specifically INCLUDED in the Essential Services clarification provided on March 23 - view here: https://azgovernor.gov/governor/news/2020/03/list-essential-services  - this means home health and in-home care services to patients and clients in the community should continue as they are currently being provided as long as they can be done in a safe manner that protects both the patient and care professional..  

 

AAHC encourages home health and in-home care staff working in the community to carry their state photo ID as well as their company badge identifying them as being employed by an essential employer.  

 

Check out the Coronavirus Resource Center for more information and updates for both Providers and Patients.
