State superintendent: Arizona should mandate masks, quarantine snowbirds, pause winter sports

By Lily Altavena | Arizona Republic

Arizona education leaders want more action from the state, particularly from Gov. Doug Ducey, to slow the spread of COVID-19 as case numbers once again increase.

Schools Superintendent Kathy Hoffman, in a statement posted to Twitter on Monday, called for a statewide mask mandate, a pause in winter sports, quarantine and testing requirements for seasonal residents, limits on social gatherings and expanded outdoor dining. 

“It seems to me that the policies that we have in place are not sufficient,” she said in an interview with The Arizona Republic. “There’s a strong connection between our public school system and public health system. And right now, they’re both struggling.” 

The Arizona Education Association, the state’s teachers’ association, launched a petition Monday demanding Ducey implement a statewide plan for school, including required safety protocols.
