In an interview with KATV on Wednesday, March 31, ACHI President and CEO Dr. Joe Thompson said he is concerned that the lifting of the statewide mask mandate could be sending the wrong message.

“I think it’s critically important to communicate to everyone that the threat is the same the day before the mask mandate is lifted and the day after,” Dr. Thompson said.
