STATEMENT FROM THE HEALTH SYSTEM ALLIANCE OF ARIZONA REGARDING LOCAL MASK MANDATES

Phoenix, AZ- The Health System Alliance of Arizona Executive Director Jennifer Carusetta issued the following statement regarding the importance of maintaining local mask mandates:

“The Health System Alliance of Arizona strongly supports maintaining existing mask mandates within local jurisdictions across the state.  The evidence is clear: wearing a mask reduces the spread of COVID-19 within our community. Eliminating these mask mandates will only increase the potential for community spread and place additional burden on our health care delivery system. We urge Arizona leaders to maintain existing mask mandates and COVID-19 mitigation efforts, and encourage Arizonans to continue to follow the CDC guidelines:

  • If you are ill, stay home except to receive medical care
  • Wear a mask when you’re in public near others
  • Stay six feet away from others
  • Wash your hands frequently
  • Wipe down surfaces that may be infected
  • Avoid gatherings of 10 or more people

Together, we can continue to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in Arizona.”
