Two Arizona county sheriffs say they refuse to cite or arrest business owners or individuals for violating the state’s emergency coronavirus restrictions.

In doing so, Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb and Mohave County Sheriff Douglas Schuster — both of them elected officials — are tapping into a growing, mostly conservative-led sentiment in the state that the lockdown has gone far enough. 

But their refusals are also in clear opposition to Governor Doug Ducey’s two-week expansion of the stay-at-home order, as well as the advice of health officials and other people who think opening businesses too early would create dangerous conditions for rapid spread of the infection.
