Cases of COVID-19, flu and RSV are on the rise in Arizona.

And now, the Arizona Department of Health Services says eight Arizona counties, including Pima County, have returned to a high level of COVID transmission. Maricopa County remains at medium community levels. 

That means once again, masks are recommended in public indoor settings there. And health officials only expect those numbers to go up as the holidays arrive. 

To learn the latest, The Show spoke with Pima County’s director of public health, Theresa Cullen.
