WE ARE STRONGER TOGETHER
The ACA’s Arizona Manufacturing Extension Partnership (Arizona MEP) team is offering to assist small and medium-sized manufacturers in our state that have had their operations impacted by the pandemic. The Arizona MEP has been working diligently to help Arizona manufacturers navigate the challenges and overcome the impacts of COVID-19. These efforts are now being accelerated by an allocation received through the U.S. Department of Commerce’s NIST MEP Emergency Assistance Program.
Arizona MEP is offering valuable business support services, subsidized by the funds from NIST, to help manufacturers overcome the effects of the pandemic or to assist with shifts to accommodate the production of PPE. Please note that this is not a cash grant.
Governor Doug Ducey and the State of Arizona are taking important measures to prioritize the health and safety of its residents. Greater Yuma is also taking the necessary steps to protect our community. Businesses throughout the state are adhering closely to the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Arizona Department of Health Services.
Local Yuma community partners have gathered a wide variety of resources to support businesses and employees as they help combat the spread of COVID-19. This site will be updated as new information becomes available.

On June 27, Governor Ducey issued Executive Order 2020-43 “Pausing of Arizona’s Reopening.” This paused the reopening of several specific industries with operations that are considered by public health to have a high-risk of spreading COVID-19, specifically gyms and fitness centers, bars and nightclubs, waterparks and tubing, and movie theaters. It also limited indoor and outdoor gatherings to no more than 50 people. Since this pause, Arizona has seen a decline in its percent positivity, an increase in hospital capacity, and an improvement in other indicators. On July 23, that order was extended, with a review every two weeks.
Together we will stay strong.
