Editor's note: At the close of business, ADHS has released updated information regarding the number of businesses that have filed applications with them, the number of businesses that were approved, and the number of businesses that were denied. We will continue to update this story with the latest information we receive.

More than 1,100 Arizona businesses, including bars, gyms, movie theaters, and water parks, have sought approval from the Arizona Department of Health Services to reopen, despite some state-issued benchmarks for those industries not being met in certain counties.

Of the 1,100, 103 businesses have been approved and 202, a healthy mix of bars and gyms, have been denied, according to the latest numbers from ADHS. Those businesses that get denied can appeal.

"ADHS staff are reviewing them as quickly as possible," said Steve Elliott, director of communications at ADHS, in a previous email.

Once a business has been approved, it can reopen immediately, said Holly Poynter, public information officer at ADHS, in an email last week, in response to some follow-up questions from ABC15. She said approved businesses have to follow the guidelines that ADHS and the Governor's Office issued on Aug. 10 alongside the benchmarks. Specific benchmarks were issued for movie theaters, restaurants, water parks, bars that serve food, and bars that do not serve food.

Here are the specific benchmarks for each industry:

Approved businesses that are located in counties where those benchmarks have not been met, such as in Maricopa County, must prove how they can "exceed" the state's safety requirements, including limiting the number of people, requiring face masks, frequent cleaning, and maintaining social distancing.

Here is a list of the current approvals and denials, as of Aug. 24. Duplicate names indicate multiple locations, ADHS said.
