Arizona Governor Doug Ducey (R) has announced in an executive order that all COVID-19 restrictions and local mask mandates have been lifted, citing a high number of vaccinations in the state.

Ducey’s order declares that COVID restrictions “are lifted and shall no longer be enforced” and that businesses may “resume normal operations.”

Additionally, it prohibits local governments from enforcing mask mandates, although businesses will still be able to enforce their own.

“No county, city or town may make or issue any order, rule or regulation that conflicts with or is in addition to the policy, directives or intent of this or any other executive order relating to the COVID-19 public health emergency or any other order, rule or regulation that was not in place as of March 11, 2020,” the order states.

Ducey first made the announcement Thursday, noting that 3 million people have been vaccinated as the state see its tenth consecutive week of declining cases and record-low hospitalizations.

I have NO intention of wearing the stupid masks. If a store or diner asks me to leave ( which they have NOT ) then so be it.
