COVID-19 trends in Sonora

The coronavirus pandemic continues to surge across Arizona, but especially so in two border counties: Yuma and Santa Cruz. Both have seen COVID-19 cases spike since Gov. Ducey's stay-at-home order expired in mid-May. That surge is reflected across the international border as well.
