Medical Expert: Rescinding Mask Mandates Leaves Arizona Vulnerable

The state’s coronavirus infections continue to fall, with just 586 new cases and 23 deaths as of March 30. A little more than 29% of the state has been vaccinated.

The Show spoke with Dr. Shad Marvasti with the University of Arizona’s College of Medicine for an assessment on the current situation with COVID-19.
