Presently, Yavapai and Coconino counties are in the “moderate transmission level” category, according to the CDC. They recommend:
· If you are at high risk for severe illness, talk to your healthcare provider about whether you need to wear a mask or take other precautions.
· Stay up to date with COVID 19 vaccines.
· Get tested if you have symptoms.
You may encounter differing recommendations or requirements in the Sedona locations you visit. Please look for guidance in businesses, hotels, resorts and public gathering places and respect that guidance if you decide to patronize them.
The City of Sedona does not presently require masks in public buildings or on public transportation.
Northern Arizona Healthcare and Yavapai County Community Health Services offer up to date statistics on the number and location of cases, hospital bed space and critical care bed space. The state Department of Health Services posts Arizona COVID-19 information.
The Sedona Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Bureau encourages you to follow your preference regarding masking and other individual preventative measures and follow these common sense safety practices:
· Stay home if you are sick or have been in contact with a sick person.
· Wash your hands often.
· Cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing.
· Respect the choices others make
