PHOENIX Nearly 700 medical providers in Arizona have signed a letter sent to Governor Doug Ducey Monday, urging him to make wearing masks a requirement when in public as coronavirus cases continue to spike across the state.

On Tuesday, the Arizona Department of Health Services announced 2,392 new cases of coronavirus reported in Arizona since Monday, the highest single-day increase the state has seen so far. The number of reported virus-related deaths increased by 25, from 1,194 on Monday to 1,219 on Tuesday.

On multiple occasions, Governor Ducey has urged people to wear masks when in public while speaking at press conferences. However, when asked about people going to the grocery store and other public places without masks on, Ducey has sidestepped the possibility of mandating them.

The letter, signed by 688 health care professionals across Arizona, says that now that the state reopened, many people feel that it is safe to resume normal life, and not wear masks in public. The letter encourages the governor to mandate wearing masks to help slow the spread of the coronavirus.
