Follow Proper Safety Protocols

The Arizona Department of Health Services urges visitors to practice the following while traveling (those at higher risk for severe illness, take extra precautions.):

  • Stay home if you're feeling sick or showing symptoms.
  • Wear a mask that covers your mouth and nose in public settings.
  • Avoid close contact (within 6 feet) of others.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • If possible, use touchless payment (pay without touching money, a card, or a keypad).
  • If you must handle money, a card, or use a keypad, use hand sanitizer right after paying.
  • After leaving an establishment, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
  • When you get home or back to your lodging establishment, wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

Recommendations for Fully Vaccinated Persons

People are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, or two weeks after a single-dose vaccine. If you do not meet these requirements, you are NOT fully vaccinated. When you are fully vaccinated, you can start doing some things that you stopped doing because of COVID-19. These activities include:

  • Gathering in any setting without wearing a mask or staying 6 feet apart, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations. Fully vaccinated persons must still follow local business and workplace guidance regarding masks and physical distancing.
  • Traveling in the United States without getting tested before or after travel, or self-quarantining after travel.
  • For international travel, consult guidance for your destination. You do not need to get tested before leaving the United States, unless your destination requires it.
  • If you’ve been around someone who has COVID-19, you do not need to stay away from others or get tested unless you have symptoms or are a resident or employee of a correctional or detention facility or homeless shelter.

Even when fully vaccinated, you should still take steps to protect yourself and others. Take precautions in public, when gathering with unvaccinated people from more than one other household, or when visiting with an unvaccinated person who is at increased risk of severe illness or death from COVID-19 or who lives with a person at increased risk.
