In total, 145,600 Scottsdale residents have received some form of the vaccine.
On May 13, Scottsdale Mayor David Ortega announced face masks were no longer required in city buildings and facilities.

City-wide, compared with numbers one week ago — 26,270 — there have been 105 new cases since May 17.

More than 90% of cases were mapped to the address of the patient’s residence. If the patient’s address was unknown, the case was mapped to the address of the provider followed by the address of the reporting facility, according to the ADHS.
