 Tucson-area officials voted Tuesday to require face masks indoors when social distancing isn’t possible even though it’s unlikely they can enforce the mandate.

The Pima County Board of Supervisors passed the measure by a 3-2 vote several hours after Gov. Doug Ducey preemptively tweeted that mask mandates can’t be enforced in Arizona.

“There is no mask mandate in Arizona. Remember that when the Pima County Board of Supervisors takes up the issue. … Arizona law clearly states businesses are NOT REQUIRED to enforce mask mandates that any city, town, county or other jurisdiction in this state established,” he said in an early-morning Twitter thread.

Ducey said mask usage should be a personal choice and promoted vaccines as the best tool for protecting against COVID-19.
