Dear fellow Sedonans,

The City of Sedona continues to encourage businesses and citizens to follow CDC guidelines on COVID prevention and respect COVID policies in local businesses and government offices.


Governor Ducey has issued several recent COVID-related Executive Orders that include:

  • Reinstating a requirement that unemployment insurance recipients must actively seek work in order to continue to be eligible for benefits
  • Rescinding a requirement that all schools require facemasks
  • Prohibiting local jurisdictions from requiring an individual to document they have been vaccinated against COVID-19 
  • Rescinding restrictions on healthcare institutions 
  • Rescinding  telemedicine-related Executive Orders due to passage of permanent legislation

You can view the Governor’s Executive Orders here
