The Arizona Public Health Association on Tuesday sent an open letter to Gov. Doug Ducey and state health director Dr. Cara Christ recommending several steps to better fight COVID-19.
Recommendations outlined in the letter include ways of producing faster testing results, enforcing masks and mitigation measures, enhancing data collection, creating more treatment capacity and using metrics to decide when to reopen schools.
The letter was also signed by 28 members of the University of Arizona’s College of Public Health.
“Now is the time for government to act to stop further spread of COVID-19,” AZPHA president Aimee Sitzler said in the letter. “We’re at a critical juncture, demanding robust government action based on what we know works.”
