Healthy Travel Practices

To our friends around the world,

Welcome and thank you for stopping by.  This page is the best place to stay current on what is happening in Sedona as we cautiously reopen, following Executive Orders issued by Arizona Governor Doug Ducey. 

Sedona has launched the Sedona|Clean.Safe.Ready campaign in which businesses voluntarily implement more than two dozen safety recommendations as they reopen.  More than 220 businesses have signed on and are listed on the site . 

We also ask that visitors and residents help keep Sedona safe,clean and ready by observing  these 8 safety guidelines while enjoying our shops and trails:

  1. Stay home if you are sick or have been in contact with a sick person
  2. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  3. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  4. Maintain a 6-foot distance from others
  5. Wear a protective face covering in public (when 6 ft distancing isn't possible)
  6. Limit contact with others
  7. Avoid congregating in public areas
  8. Stay on trails except to let people pass (maintain 6 ft distance)

Thank you!

Reopening Update

Many restaurants, tour companies stores, hotels, resorts, galleries and attractions have re-opened with Sedona|Safe.Clean.Ready practices in place.   This site lists the status of many local businesses. We are updating it multiple times a day.

Most of the Sedona trails have reopened with a few exceptions. Some heritage sites such as Palataki and V-Bar-V are still closed. 

The Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Bureau supports a measured, careful approach to reopening. We also encourage you to take the Sedona Cares Pledge to help us protect our fragile, sacred land.

Our Visitor Center volunteers and staff can help you by phone, email and Live Chat every day, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.  Here is how to get in touch:

We recommend Arizona DHS as a good source for more Arizona information. Governor Ducey has made a phone number, 211, and a website,, available for questions and updates about COVID-19 in Arizona.

We know a touch of Sedona can brighten anyone’s day, so if you are not planning to travel any time soon, please visit local businesses offering online products deliverable to your home and online services you can enjoy wherever you are.  Whether you are at home or practicing social distancing at work, now is a great time to acquire a little piece of The Most Beautiful Place on Earth. If you are looking for something to do from the safety of home, we are also promoting virtual events.

You can be inspired by Sedona’s beauty anytime by visiting our live webcam.

You can also share the natural beauty Sedona during your next Zoom conference.  Download a beautiful Sedona image, and then upload it to your Zoom account as a background.  When you do, share your story on Facebook,  #SedonaStrong.
