Vice Mayor Mike Allsop pointed out that, "We as a city are between a rock and a hard spot with the
Navajo Nation to the north and the White Mountain
Apache Tribe to the south," referring to the high rate
of infection and cases per capita on the reservations.
"And on top of it, everybody wants to come up here in the summer and cool off," added Allsop. "With the influx of people coming up here, we're trying to protect everybody the best we can."
