Student in Class While Wearing a Face MaskHealth experts are concerned that Arizona's recently approved budget, which prohibits public schools and universities from enforcing mask restrictions or COVID-19 testing for unvaccinated kids, is jeopardizing public health. As reported by KTAR News in the article "Arizona's Ban on Mask Mandates in Schools Criticized by Health Experts", experts weighed in on how the legislation could prolong the pandemic in Arizona in a virtual panel organized by the Committee to Protect Health Care, a national advocacy organization that aims to "fight for quality, affordable health care that protects patients over profits."

Daily coronavirus cases have decreased in Arizona since March, with only a few hundred new cases each day currently compared to thousands earlier this year, according to the Arizona Department of Health Services. In recent weeks, though, that number has risen a little bit. The panel's experts were also concerned about the state's low vaccination rate.

Since January, 49.9% of Arizona's eligible population has received a COVID-19 vaccination, according to the state's health department. The state has reported about 898,000 COVID-19 cases and 18,000 deaths since January 2020.
