PHOENIX — The coronavirus pandemic has taken a severe toll on the U.S. economy with soaring unemployment that’s nearing Great Depression levels.
Hundreds of thousands of Arizonans have filed for unemployment benefits since March.
In order to “flatten the curve” and prevent a large influx of patients that could overwhelm the state’s hospital system, Gov. Doug Ducey ordered that only “essential” businesses remain open and residents stay home as much as possible.
Ducey is gradually allowing more industries to reopen, but some businesses say they won’t recover.
Here’s a list of Arizona businesses that announced they have closed permanently
