When Arizona lifted its coronavirus stay-at-home order on May 15, most assumed the state had successfully moved past the most serious health risks posed by the pandemic. But total cases there have skyrocketed since then, and Arizona is now rolling back much of its initial reopening plans. We will host a key leader in the state, Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego, who has been critical of Arizona being one of the last states to have a stay-at-home order, as well as one of the first ones to rescind it. Washington Post columnist Jonathan Capehart will get her thoughts on the measures that need to be taken now, and why she believes her state’s battle against coronavirus is “nowhere near over.” Join Washington Post Live on Thursday, July 9 at 12:00 p.m. ET.
