No one has been cited for violating mask mandates in Arizona’s big cities. Other COVID-19 citations are limited, too

By Paulina Pineda | Arizona Republic

No one in the Phoenix area’s 11 largest cities has been cited for disregarding local or countywide mask mandates that have been in place for six months to curb the spread of COVID-19, police data shows.

Tucson and Flagstaff have not issued any citations for disregarding mask orders, either.

Only a handful of metro Phoenix cities have cited businesses for staying open during spring and summer closures or for not following reopening guidelines laid out in the governor’s executive orders.

Phoenix area police and the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office cited or referred fewer than 75 businesses out of more than 3,500 complaints, according to an Arizona Republic investigation. 

Scottsdale has cited the most businesses, followed by Tempe and Phoenix. Avondale, Buckeye, Glendale, Peoria and Surprise have not cited any person or business related to pandemic orders.
