Healthy Travel Practices

To our friends around the world,

Welcome and thanks for stopping by.  This page is the best place to stay current on what is happening in Sedona as we deal with the coronavirus pandemic.

Arizona Governor Doug Ducey's Executive Order of March 19 means all bars, movie theatres, indoor gyms and fitness clubs in Sedona are closed and restaurants are prohibited from offering on-site dining.  Many businesses in Sedona have voluntarily suspended operations.  Many jeep tour operators, spas, stores, galleries and attractions, like the Chapel of the Holy Cross and our Visitor Center location, have closed.  Currently, mandated closures do not affect hotels and resorts, although several have chosen to close for the safety of their employees and guests.

Presently, the federal government has not closed the trails in the National Forest surrounding Sedona. However, many sites have been closed including campgrounds, heritage sites like Honanki and Palatki and most day-use sites have been closed.  

This list updates the status of many local businesses. We are adding to it multiple times a day.

You can still get live access to Visitor Center services by phone, email and Live Chat every day, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.  Here is how to get in touch:

If you are already in the area, you will find brochures and the Experience Sedona Guide, outside the Visitor Center. We are also offering an online list of businesses with delivery and drive up food service.

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

There are several confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Sedona as of today.  As a small, rural community, the pandemic has the potential to strain Sedona’s medical and other resources, and we are working hard to minimize person-to-person contact and maximize best practices for keeping safe. 

As we do with all visitors to Sedona, we want you to have the best experience Sedona has to offer. Unfortunately, we cannot do that at this time.  

We know a touch of Sedona can brighten anyone’s day. That is why we are working to publish a page filled with local businesses offering online sales, special offers, gift certificates and coupons.  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. We will let you know as soon as that page is ready to go.  

A tip about gift cards:  You can either use them the next time you visit red rock country or gift them to friends and relatives.  

You can also visit our live webcam to see Sedona’s stunning beauty from your own computer.

We look forward to seeing you soon here in the Most Beautiful Place on Earth.

Be well!
