How come bars are still open in Mohave County?


I think they were still open today because Mohave County didn't have a reported case until this morning. According to the AZ Department of Health Services website, "Effective close of business Friday, March 20, all bars, movie theaters, and gyms in counties with confirmed COVID-19 cases are required to close." I'm assuming now all restaurants, bars, etc. now have to close because of the confirmed case.


I know the case in Mohave county was around lake Havasue, I'm in Beaver Dam, which is quite a distance from there, we have a small store and a tiny bar. Does the bar here have to close, it's the only place to get cigs unless you get on the freeway and go to the Pilot.
