Dear fellow Sedonans,

Yavapai County and the Sedona area are experiencing a “high rate of transmission” for COVID-19, according to state metrics. The City of Sedona continues to encourage businesses and visitors to follow CDC guidelines on COVID prevention and respect COVID policies in local businesses and government offices. The City of Sedona requires all persons to wear a face covering while inside any City of Sedona building. Any person who cannot wear a face covering because of a medical condition is exempt.

Face coverings are not required at outdoor city facilities where physical distancing can be maintained.

Yavapai County Community Health Services and Northern Arizona Healthcare offer up to date statistics on COVID-19’s local impact, including number and location of cases, hospital bed space and critical care bed space.
