This link is just Maricopa County, but that is the bulk of the state's more urban and suburban population. Rural areas seem to have low risk. I have followed the link every day o a couple of month.
The USA Today/Republic and many other newspapers are over focusing on cases, which we know has spiked due largely to the spike in testing. You can reach your own conclusions as why they are reporting it in this way.
All the pike in cases means is we just know more of the people that are infected, the vast majority of which are headed toward some level of immunity, and that the death rate is very low, as we have known for over a month, since Stanford and others started doing random samples with surprisingly little news coverage.
Hospitaliations, ICU, and deaths are what matters, as they are not affected by increased testing. Hospital capacity is also important. Ducey seems to get it, and shares all sots of this data on his regular press conferences if you watch them online.
AZ has had a slight increase in hospitalizations and ICU patients, cause of minor concern so far, but given ending the lock down, Memorial Day weekend, and some densely populated protests, probably not unexpected.
Capacity is not an issue, not yet anyway, but we need to continue to monitor hospitalizations & ICU use closely.
