The state’s top health official said Monday said she’s not concerned that nationally televised photos of Gov. Doug Ducey barefaced at a Trump campaign event undermines the state’s $3 million “mask up” campaign.

“I think we’ve done a really good job of getting the message out on the importance of mask wearing,” Cara Christ said at a press briefing. That includes Christ herself doing television commercials.

“There are circumstances where it may be safe to not do that,” Christ said in response to questions about the governor’s activities last week on the lawn of the White House. There are photos of Ducey in a crowd of others — also unmasked — waiting for the president to give a speech.

“But we would encourage everyone to wear a mask,” she said.

It isn’t just about COVID-19.
