Information You Need: URGENT COVID-19 Arizona Update

Right now, COVID-19 cases and transmission in Arizona are higher than they have ever been. Hospitals are at full capacity within the state, overwhelming frontline workers and the healthcare system as a whole. Going into the holiday season, it has never been more important to take basic precautions such as staying home, washing hands, and wearing a cloth face covering. It is also critical to keep yourself safe from other avoidable issues that could lead you to contact the health care system – with health care systems overwhelmed avoiding injuries is equally important to reduce burden on our system. 

For regularly updated case counts and for more COVID-19 related data, visit the Arizona Dept of Health site. 

 If you or someone you know is experiencing symptoms, or has been exposed to someone with COVID-19, it is essential that they get tested, quarantine while waiting for results, and isolate if they are positive. Testing can sometimes be challenging to find and one of the MEZCOPH research teams and SERI, led by Dr. Paloma Beamer, has compiled a list of all the testing facilities in Tucson, AZ which is available at this link

Other testing facilities across the state can be identified at this link.
