And then late Thursday the Navajo Nation said they had 14 total cases, including the three that had been previously reported. On Friday, Cochise County reported their first case of coronavirus. 

The Navajo Nation president has ordered a "shelter-in-place" quarantine for the Chilchinbeto community, which requires them to remain in their homes so slow spread of the virus.

The new case in Coconino County came from a test by TGen labs. The first in Yavapai County is a person from Sedona. Santa Cruz County only said the patient traveled to an area where community transmission is present.

Arizona Sen. Martha McSally said Friday morning that the federal government is working on a package that will put money in the hands of individuals and businesses to help them get through the coronavirus crisis. At the same time, the Arizona Legislature is in recess until Monday having failed to send a virus budget bill to the governor. While the Senate passed a $50 million measure, the House rejected it.
