Realities of masking and vaccination changes for Arizona

The head of the Arizona Department of Health Services discusses what she's advising people to do in this leg of the pandemic.

Finally, Conover spoke with Dr. Cara Christ, the director of the Arizona Department of Health Services, about the Centers for Disease Control's new masking update and the drivers behind vaccinating children over 12 years old.

She said she encourages people who are unvaccinated to still wear their masks in public. It's vaccinated individuals who can move around in more social situations without wearing a mask.
