The Chandler City Council announced during a meeting Wednesday, May 13 that city facilities not previously opened would open May 18 as would the city's public pools beginning May 18. The update comes one day after Gov. Doug Ducey said the state's stay-at-home order will expire May 15 and that gyms and pools could open beginning May 13.

Users are expected to practice social distancing, according to the council, and remain at least six feet from those they may encounter. Facilities will be open in a capacity that follows direction from the council and the governor's executive orders and abides by guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

"We’re excited to reopen and re-energize our local economy," said Mayor Kevin Hartke during the meeting.
