Reports of food industry workers in greater Phoenix testing positive for coronavirus have increased from a trickle to a steady stream in recent weeks, following Arizona Governor Doug Ducey lifting stay-at-home restrictions on May 15.

On May 25, the Scottsdale-based Oregano's Pizza Bistro announced that a staff member at its Queen Creek location had tested positive. Later that week, La Ristra New Mexican Kitchen in Gilbert made a similar announcement, though the employee had not worked since May 19, meaning there been less exposure to other staff members and customers.
