Two health care companies in Arizona have spoken out against removing mandatory face mask mandates after Scottsdale rescinded its requirement earlier this week.
HonorHealth officials said in a statement on Tuesday that it “opposes efforts to rescind or rollback face covering mandates in our community.”
HonorHealth described itself as the largest employer in Scottsdale.
Banner Health also said in a statement on Wednesday that it “strongly opposed to any decision or consideration to relax existing mask mandates.”
Banner Health described itself as Arizona’s largest health care system.
The city of Scottsdale rescinded its mask mandate earlier this week, city officials announced.
But people in the city will not see much change because Maricopa County’s mask requirement is still in place.
