Arizona Governor Doug Ducey this week announced the state is working to bring COVID-19 testing to Phoenix Sky Harbor International (PHX), Tucson International (TUS) and other Arizona airports.

The move was among many made by the Republican governor in issuing an executive order to help combat the spread of coronavirus in the state.

Ducey and Arizona Director of Health Services Dr. Cara Christ also announced new guidance for holiday gatherings to help Arizonans make smart decisions and prevent new infections over the holidays.

“As more winter and holiday visitors travel to Arizona, many are entering through airports,” the governor’s office said in a press release. “At the governor’s request, Dr. Christ will work with Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and Tucson International Airport to launch testing sites, allowing incomers to get tested immediately with quick turnaround. The Department of Health Services also will work with the airports on inbound messaging around the importance of wearing masks and information on where travelers can get tested.”
