Some areas of California are being allowed to lift coronavirus-related restrictions, but the limits remain in place in many of the more populated cities and regions.

Arizona’s restrictions were never as strong, and Gov. Doug Ducey is letting the stay-at-home order lapse on the night of May 15.

That, at least in part, has led a number of Californians to head to a popular western locale in Arizona — Lake Havasu City. Some residents are concerned that some of the visitors aren’t wearing masks or practicing social distancing.

The Show spoke with Lake Havasu City Mayor Cal Sheehy about how Lake Havasu has looked with its influx of visitors.
