Several press conferences have happened this week addressing the pandemic, including one from Governor Doug Ducey and Arizona Department of Health Services Director Dr. Cara Christ on Wednesday. Maricopa County health officials also held a press conference Thursday.

Ducey did not issue a statewide mask mandate, which some local leaders, including Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego had asked him to implement. Following his remarks, Gallego tweeted saying his “lack of leadership” was “disappointing.”

Ducey did reiterate the importance of masks and hand-washing, and re-emphasized the requirement of masks for charter and district schools.
