Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego said on Sunday that the city’s policy requiring face masks to be worn in public will not be enforced during President Donald Trump’s upcoming event at a Valley megachurch.
“We are not going to be focused on enforcement during the rally,” Gallego said during an appearance on CNN.
She added that she is hopeful Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey — who will attend the event — will take the opportunity to set an example regarding mask usage.
“We would hope that our governor … can send a strong message,” she said.
