Wednesday, March 25th - Coronavirus (COVID-19) - There are now six deaths in Arizona attributed to Coronavirus, according to the Arizona Department of Health Services (AZDHS). 

Note: We will provide updates throughout the day to this page if any new information occurs.

Arizona State Information

Here is the latest information from across Arizona. First of all, it’s important to note that the community spread in Arizona is increasing, and considered to be at a moderate level. So, staying at home and reducing exposure to other people is a good strategy, both to protect yourself and others. 

The information on testing is extremely limited, as has been well reported across the state and country. However, taking the information from the AZDHS website, focusing on the testing done at the Arizona State Public Health Laboratory, about 88% of the tests come back negative. Since they are only testing those that are a high risk, or show possible symptoms, that means only 12% actually have or might have coronavirus. 

*Please note, this is not inclusive of all testing across the state, as many private providers and labs are ramping up their testing. What this means is that the number of cases will spike in the coming days, and that should not come as a surprise. 


Please note, we will share as much information as we can find from each county. Not all counties provide a great deal of information.

Yavapai County has also set up an Emergency Phone Bank. 


It is operational Monday - Saturday, 8-5. You can find up-to-date local information, resources and guidance in Yavapai County.

Navajo County

Navajo County is reporting 37 cases this morning. 

As we reported recently, a small village in Navajo County was identified as a “Hot Spot” and completely closed. 

Now, the entire Navajo Nation is under Shelter in Place orders. Read that entire Shelter in Place order here:

Some of the numbers from these two sites may not seem to match up with other reports, but the Navajo Nation spans across a portion of three different states.
