City of Globe Response to: 
Governor Ducey’s “Stay in Place”: Executive Order 2020-18

To Mitigate Impact of COVID-19



(Globe AZ, March 31, 2020) On March 30, 2020, Governor Ducey issued executive Order 2020-18 ordering people to “limit their time away from their residency” in order to slow the spread of COVID-19. The Governor’s goal is to promote social distancing, limit social gatherings, and reduce non-essential travel. 


This Executive Order has created confusion in the Globe/Southern Gila County region. Residents of Globe should understand that this is not a lockdown or a curfew for residents. Businesses that are deemed essential, like grocery stores and pharmacies, are unaffected. Non-essential businesses are allowed to continue to function as long as they do not have direct contact with customers.  


There are four key exceptions that allow residents to leave their homes: 


1.     You can leave your home to participate in Essential Activities such as:

a.     Shopping for groceries and other important supplies for your family

b.     Seeking medical assistance for yourself, or to assist a family member, or friend 

c.     Participating in outdoor activities while maintaining a safe distance from others

d.     Engaging in constitutional activities like freedom of speech or religion

2.     You can leave your home if your employment:

a.     Is related to providing Essential Functions such as healthcare, government, or utilities (see full list of Essential Functions below) 

b.     Is with an Essential Business such as a grocery store, bank, or restaurant providing take-out (see full list of Essential Businesses below)

3.     You can leave your home to: 

a.     Do business with any of the listed Essential Business, like a grocery or hardware store  

b.     Seek services from an Essential Function like healthcare or government services 

4.     You can leave your home to work in your Non-Essential Business if the business is not open to the public and you do not have direct contact with customers


Globe Business owners who operate an Essential Business, employees who work in an Essential Business, or perform Essential Functions will see no change. 


Globe business owners who are unsure if they operate an Essential Business are welcome to contact the City of Globe Economic Development Director, Linda Oddonetto at (928) 961-3382 and seek assistance in determining your status.


All individuals should maintain contact with your individual employers to determine your status and how this Executive Order impacts you.  


The City of Globe highly encourages all residents to voluntarily comply with Governor Ducey’s “Stay in Place” order. The City of Globe believes that our residents understand the importance of this and will do their best to support these community goals. In extreme cases, flagrant violators will be addressed.   


The goal of the City of Globe is to support our residents and businesses during these challenging times. We offer this information as our best understanding of the Governor’s order based on the information we have today. Please continue to seek additional information as it becomes available and make your best judgment based on the totality of information, the source of the information, and with consideration of the well-being of your family and community.

Inital Statement from the City of Globe March 30, 2020 regarding Governor Ducey's "Stay at Home" Order

Today, Governor Ducey issued a “stay at home” order asking all Arizonans to “limit your time away from your residence”. But, there ARE exceptions, meaning you are allowed to leave your home to participate in Essential Services. 


After Tuesday at 5 pm:  

  • You can still go to the Grocery stores (essential services), and they will be open

  • Pharmacy and hardware stores are also essential services and will remain open as normal 
  • All public safety, utilities, and government agencies will continue to function as essential services 


This is not a lock-down. The Governor is hoping to limit the impact of the COVID-19 virus by asking people to limit their social gatherings and travel. The Governor's order is to ask people to eliminate non-essential travel from their home. 


People can still leave their home for these open Essential Services: 

  • Healthcare and Health & Human Services

These services are permitted to remain open and there is no need to over buy because they will STILL be allowed to be open after Tuesday  



The City of Globe will be producing an information page to better explain the differences of what is essential and what is not. For now, understand that your daily life in Globe this Wednesday, April 1st, will not be much different than this past weekend.
