PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey is urging Arizonans to be understanding and reasonable as people and businesses face April 1 due dates for bills such as mortgages, rent, utilities and internet service.

Ducey on Wednesday posted on Twitter that “the world has changed since March 1" and that bills previously paid routinely “are now a struggle for many people and small businesses." The Republican governor said he wants and expects that no family, individual or business should face eviction or lose critical services because of hardships caused by the coronavirus.

Ducey also said people and businesses should pay their bills if they can afford to do so and that people who can't should talk to their landlords or lenders.
