Maricopa County’s disease control division medical director said Monday that she didn’t agree with Gov. Doug Ducey’s decision to shutter schools, restaurants and other public places amid COVID-19 concerns.
Dr. Rebecca Sunenshine told the Phoenix City Council that it was her opinion that the decision to close down public spaces was made too early.
“I would try to minimize spread, maximize distance but keep facilities open because I think this is going to be a long haul,” she said.
Last week, Ducey ordered schools, restaurants, bars, gyms and entertainment facilities to close in hopes of slowing the spread of COVID-19.
