Know Before You Go

  • As of January 26 2021, the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued new guidelines for inbound international air travel. There are no state-implemented restrictions for individuals visiting Arizona from other U.S. state or international countries.
  • Wear a mask that covers your mouth and nose when out in public—most counties and businesses require them.
  • The League of Arizona Cities and Towns created a map to show which areas have mask policies.
  • Follow health officials’ guidance on personal hygiene and social distancing before and during your visit.
  • COVID-19 testing sites are located all around the state and can be located using this map. The state is offering free COVID-19 saliva testing at many locations around the state and those can be found here. Additionally, both Sky Harbor International Airport and Tucson International Airport have available testing for arriving and departing passengers.
  • While Arizona has 22 Tribal nations, not all are open to visitors presently. Check before you go. Call ahead to confirm if an attraction or park is open and under what conditions. An open and closed list of tourism-related entities can be found here.
  • Avoid high-risk activities like rock climbing or backcountry activities, as law enforcement and rescue operations may be limited. Find more tips at Responsible Recreation Across Arizona.
