Sedona Mayor Updates Emergency Proclamation to include business mandates

Article submitted by the city of Sedona.

Sedona AZBecause the safety of residents is the most important consideration and to mitigate the potential spread of COVID-19, city of Sedona Mayor Sandy Moriarty updated yesterday’s Proclamation of Emergency to mandate the following regarding businesses, effective 11:59 p.m. on March 19, 2020, until 11:59 p.m. on March 31, 2020:

  1. All restaurants, food courts, cafes, coffeehouses, retail food facilities, and other similar businesses and establishments are prohibited from serving food and beverages on their premises. Businesses are encouraged to offer food and beverages using delivery service, window service, drive-through service, or drive-up service, and to use precautions in doing so to mitigate the potential transmission of COVID-19, including social distancing.
  2. The following businesses are closed to occupancy by the public:
    • Bars, taverns, brew pubs, breweries, microbreweries, distilleries, wineries, tasting rooms, special licensees, clubs, and other similar businesses and establishments offering alcoholic beverages of spiritous liquor for consumption on-premises.
    • Theaters, cinemas, and indoor and outdoor performance venues.
    • Museums.
    • Gymnasiums, fitness centers, recreation centers, indoor sports facilities, indoor exercise facilities, exercise studios, yoga and barre studios, and other similar facilities.
    • Bingo halls and other recreational or entertainment facilities.

This does not prohibit an owner, employee, contractor, vendor or supplier of a local business from entering, using or occupying that place of business in their professional capacity.

The restrictions do not apply to any of the following:

  1. Grocery stores, markets, convenience stores, and other similar businesses and establishments that offer food and beverage that is not for on-premises consumption.
  2. Pharmacies and drug stores.
  3. Food banks and food pantries.
  4. Restaurants located within health care facilities, nursing homes, shelters, group homes, places of worship or similar facilities.
  5. Restaurants located at institutions of higher learning.
  6. Vendors and concessionaires located within the Sedona Airport.
  7. Banks and financial institutions.

All businesses and houses of worship are encouraged to limit gatherings and practice social distancing. Anyone who violates this proclamation will be guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor.

“We recognize this will have a significant impact to businesses, but the risk of not acting poses far greater threat. Nothing outweighs the importance of protecting the health and safety of residents in these unprecedented times,” said Moriarty.

The city is in frequent contact with the Arizona Department of Health and Human Services, Coconino and Yavapai counties and their epidemiologists, emergency response teams and policy leaders, healthcare professionals and other stakeholders to monitor the situation daily.

  1. Enchantment Resort and Mii Amo Spa Temporary Close says:

    In challenging times, it is important that we remember what matters to us most. Over the past days and weeks, we have been closely monitoring the developing global story of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Working with the most up-to-date information available on the CDC’s recommendations, federal and state mandates and the scientific evidence on how the virus spreads, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close Enchantment Resort and Mii amo.

    While this decision goes against all of our natural instincts—to bring people together and share our passion for everything our resort has to offer—we feel that we have a responsibility to do everything we can to stem the spread of the virus, and ensure the health and wellbeing of our team members, guests and broader community. As of today, it is our intention to close through April 15, 2020, but we will continue to assess the situation daily.

    While the resorts are temporarily closed, we plan to support our homeowners and residents by having a limited amount of essential, on-site staff.

    For information on reservation modifications and refunds, visit enchantmentresort.com/reservations or miiamo.com/reservations. For continued resort updates, please follow Enchantment Resort and Mii amo on social channels.

  2. Jon says:

    How’s your Sedona business being affected by the Coronavirus?

    Smart Sedonans don’t need to worry even without tourists. It’s the greedy over expanded businesses that the city council and staff promoted and lured here without good business principles and need via the chamber that are going to be begging. By the way it’s time to shut off the chamber’s money. It isn’t needed and it isn’t theirs. It’s Sedona taxpayers. Not one dime for the chamber now. Let them earn their own money or shut down their chamber until this pandemic is over. They are not needed and unessential to Sedona. Count them as furloughed and out of business.

  4. Mark Alexander says:

    Let the political shenanigans continue.

    And finally, a personal note of reflection and encouragement… As I was contemplating the Millennial resistance to not congregate in bars and on beaches, I received this message from my youngest son, whose college just shut down. He is reminding his friends, who are missing the end of their senior year, that when his grandfather was a 21-year-old senior at Dartmouth College, his entire class left for WWII, and many did not return. They were, indeed, The Greatest Generation.

    This is a good time to reflect on what we value and what actually has value, and to rededicate ourselves to Keep America Great!

  5. Phillip says:

    Twin Arrows Navajo Casino Resort and Arizona Snowbowl closed.

    Snowbowl stopped winter operations Tuesday at 4 PM by closing all lift operations, uphill access and food, beverages, retail and rental services. Pack up your skis and wait for spring hiking weather. No more gambling folks.

  6. Alex D. says:

    Does anyone remember when polio was a huge threat? Maybe these disasters happen in order to remind people there’s a higher power in control. And it isn’t the City Council, Staff, and their beloved “regional” Chamber of Commerce.

    The problem is, everyone must suffer for their blatant and obvious blunders. Shame – all of you fools who think you know what’s best. Ha! Sad, however, for long established businesses who must now suffer due to the greed of the chamber and lodging council. Karma indeed comes with a bitter/sweet flavor.

  7. 2bsnowy Flag says:

    Where would Sedona be without Flag to show the way to craft Coconino emergency proclamations? NVM it was a template from the government right?

  8. Jackson, formerly of Sedona says:

    The problem is the city will most likely use this disaster as a reason to give C of C & Lodging Council even more $$$$ using the guise of needing them to help bail out the economic disaster. That’s how it works in Sedona. Counterproductive to most but highly beneficial to those on the receiving end. Just ask the pres/CEO of the Chamber when she cashes that monthly $11,000 + paycheck. Enough to make anyone sick. Sedona’s version of coronavirus ?

  9. @alex says:

    Oh so the corona virus has the C of C to blame now also.. you crybaby’s are hilarious.

  10. Alex D. says:

    No, stupid @alex. My previous comment did not blame the C of C for the coronavirus! What it does imply is Sedona government quite possibly will use the disease for a reason to continue giving the undeserved “chamber” even more money allegedly to be used for bailing out the predicted sinking economy.

    It will be another sweetheart deal for only those members of the C of C and to hell with the smart business owners who refrain from being coerced into being members of this ongoing scam and ill-conceived give-away to a “regional” organization to promote businesses who do not contribute to City of Sedona tax base.

    Don’t forget – all those people on the “take” are also vulnerable to catching the disease.

  11. @@alex says:

    there is nothing hilarious about the city gifting away millions of dollars to a third party private regional club. 2.5 million a year off the backs of the small businesses and residents. imo

  12. Krista Glenden says:

    You bet that the chamber will absolutely use the pandemic as an excuse to ask for even more money next year. Gee, I wonder if the chamber CEO will see fit to waive her salary until the pandemic is over, in solidarity with all the businesses in Sedona who know only one thing, tourism, and will therefore struggle to make up for lost revenues.

    By the way, which genius at the city wrote this …

    All businesses and houses of worship are encouraged to limit gatherings and practice social distancing. Anyone who violates this proclamation will be guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor.

    If you don’t do something you are “encouraged” to do (not required), you are guilty of a misdemeanor. How much are we taxpayers paying the person who gave us that highly-intelligent statement?

  13. @alex @krista says:

    Cry on crybaby’s!!!! Hilarious

  14. Tom lee says:

    I never thought about that.. yes I hope the C of C money is increased on a short term basis. Gotta get Sedona’s economy’s moving again and those people back to work… But I know most don’t care about that here..only care about themselves and their constant complaining about the C of C. Good Lordy

  15. @ Krista Glenden says:

    “If you don’t do something you are “encouraged” to do (not required), you are guilty of a misdemeanor. How much are we taxpayers paying the person who gave us that highly-intelligent statement?”

    Our Sedona “professional staff” are paid $130,000 to $200,000 plus health benefits, retirement , a $5-6000 annual car allowance and a phone allowance. They will tell you how they are professionals and deserve that much money. Of course, they would fail at managing a Taco Bell.

    We need to shut the City of Sedona down, and let these “professionals” go where they will be appreciated. Don’t ask me where that would be.

  16. Prepare for a long quarantine. says:

    People whose hearts are sickened and minds are disordered enjoy shocking and manipulating other people. It gives them a feeling of worth, and power. And some of these jokers thrive on sensationalism and panic, without caring what damage they may do.

  17. The Upside says:

    Will city/chamber induced tourists be forced to eat take out since restaurants will be closed? That comment by no means is intended to offend local restaurants who refrained from being coerced into becoming members of the C of C in order to receive referrals from the city funded Chamber of Commerce Visitors Center.

    It’s extremely sad for them as well as other Sedona businesses who refrained from participating in the strong arm tactics attempted to coerce them into joining a regional club that promotes out-of city members who do not contribute to City of Sedona taxes. Isn’t that called discrimination? Well, Karma’s a bitch but unfortunately we all suffer.

    Let City Hall sit and rot in mold. It already has a history of mold problems so that should be easy.

  18. @ Prepare for a long quarantine. says:

    You may be right. This sure seems to bring out the inner totalitarian in a lot of people.

  19. Rita, Sedona says:

    Pisses me off and should be pissing you off in Arizona!

    Here’s what Arizona Republlic, a liberal paper had buried below a headline screaming at Republican Ducey –

    ………………….Ducey had for days recommended that people avoid crowds but stopped short of a statewide mandate for businesses to close or people to stay home. Tempe — a nightlife hotspot — on Thursday joined cities including Phoenix, Tucson, Flagstaff and Sedona that have ordered bars and gyms to close while restaurants offer only takeout or drive-thru service.

    Ducey’s delay in acting had echoes of his foot-dragging on closing schools.

    The second-term governor took that action last Sunday after school district officials across metro Phoenix had ignored his calls from the week before not to close schools to stop the spread of the virus……………………..

    Restaurants throughout the state of Arizona will be able to deliver alcoholic beverages with the purchase of food, an effort to limit the huge financial hit that restaurants are facing.

    You have the logic and debate skills of a not too bright 5 year old.

    Or do you work for government? But I repeat myself.

  25. Debby, Uptown says:

    This virus proves we cannot support a tourist economy and we cannot encourage tourists to come to our places of residence beyond numbers that our healthcare systems can manage. There’s a Ted Talk about this by a scientist-epidemiologist woman that explains it in understandable lay language. All healthcare workers need protecting.

  26. Mati says:

    Developers need to go away. Go speculate elsewhere.

  27. Mike Campbell says:

    We must just say NO. No more excessive tourists. No more tax money to the Sedona Chamber . Our safety has to come first before greed.

  28. Kate Diane Olsen says:

    Have you presented your wise words and analysis to the Sedona City Council? We cannot support a tourist economy even within the bounds of our area and infrastructure but try to convince our leaders of that who have no problem with a rounded off $12K salary to the CEO of the Chamber! How about #15DaystoReturnTheSpreadofChamberDollars?

  29. @Kate Diane Olsen says:

    Many people have presented this to the city council starting back in 2012. They only listen to the Chamber. They even hired a professional economic specialist Larry Harmer. During his presentation he told them this, but the wouldn’t hear him.

    They continued to enrich the chamber with annual subsidies burnt through reserves and gotten more loans. Increased taxes to pay for their mismanagement and failed to do what they are supposed to do, infrastructure.

    They enabled and endorsed discrimination. Used the taxes they imposed on in-city to market those OUTSIDE the city limits who DON’T contribute to tax base and complete with those who pay. The residents and small businesses are burdened while the regional chamber and their regional members make the bucks off our back. The CEO of regional chamber makes 12K a MONTH while most the workers don’t make that in a year!

    Anyone that spoke up has been threaten, called names, and blackballed. The city council has completely disrespected the people.

    These millions of dollars (2.5 million a year goes to chamber, 500K to library when the library is paid from our property taxes) being funneled to chamber and others are being used in whatever way they want. Empowering the chamber to award anyone who goes along imo.

  30. Morris T. says:

    I really feel for the many people who are losing their income now, and pray for everyone’s health. At the same time, I and my neighbors — we talk when we meet in the street, and yes, we are standing 6 feet apart — all agree that the absence of the spring tourist crush has been a relief and a blessing.

    What a difference! No traffic, car exhaust, noise and trash. Really, it is unbelievable how much better it is without the tourism here. You know, the city manager and chamber of commerce CEO are always trying to tell us “how much” tourism does for us, but we could pay for the basics of city operations just fine without the crush of tourism, which primarily lines the pockets of big hotel chains and wealthy business owners.

    The paragraph below is from the news on March 22:

    Marriott’s CEO Arne Sorenson did not mince words in a video message to employees last week, telling them the company, which has been around for nearly a century, is now in its most devastating period ever as it runs about 75 percent below normal levels. Indeed, he said things are worse for the business than the 2008 financial crisis and the post-9/11 period combined.

    It is too bad that it has taken a pandemic and severe recession in which many people will suffer to allow Sedona residents to enjoy peace and quiet. I did not used to be one of the people wanting to “tear down” the city government but over the past several years, I have watched the city manager and city council continue to give ridiculous amounts of money to the chamber of commerce, give fat paychecks to themselves and continue to vote for more, more, more for tourists while shortchanging residents who need better parks, parks programs, paving and lower sewer fees. They give more money for advertising for tourists, all the while building more parking lots — even a parking garage! — to let all those tourists park their cars and spend their money with the Marriott, Hyatt, and other hotels that give their money to shareholders, not Sedona. If you think that the fact that the manager of the Marriott or Hyatt lives in Sedona makes these companies “local” and means that they care about Sedona and our residents, you are naive.

    I used to consider myself as fairly neutral about the city and tourism, but not any more. The pandemic and recession are hurting Sedona, and any resident who continues to believe that the main focus of the city should be to promote and support tourism is a fool. The moral of the story of the coronavirus and the resulting recession is not that we need to help re-build tourism when it’s over. Just the opposite! The moral of the story is that we need to move away from our reliance on tourism, and the greed of the chamber and the Lodging Council, in order to protect our community and ourselves in the future.

  31. Marge, Sedona says:

    Bravo @Morris T. However don’t be surprised when City uses this disaster as yet another excuse to give even more money to the chamber to reinvent Sedona as the tourist trap it’s become. It’s totally weird that in spite of Sedona Mayor declaring an emergency there was a front page article in yesterday’s Arizona Republic (3/21 Saturday) touting Sedona for it’s hiking trails, featuring a full page photo of Sedona! As if we need it! How much did that cost our city, chamber?

    But maybe the upside is that with free(?) publicity like that why would there be a reason to pay for it via chamber of opportunists? Of course there’s never really been justification for the great cash giveaway to the C of C. But maybe it has something to do with the high-priced Pres/CEO?

  32. Paul says:

    Let’s get this straight. No advertising should be allowed and should have been suspended under the proclamation. Tourists fall under public health and welfare.

    The city manager and mayor owe the Sedona residents assurances our resources and facilities are not to be overwhelmed by tourists wanting to escape their areas. We are not a refugee camp!

  33. Tina says:

    Other towns have furloughed almost all employees and only essential employees will work from home or one or few to a location. We’re not essential here because we work service jobs. I’m headed to family in Utah because it’s easier and we will be together to help each other if needed.

    Whose being furloughed and cut here? Enchantment is closed and will remain closed.

  34. Morris T. says:

    And, by the way, the CEO of the Marriott announced today that …

    “Both Mr. Marriott and I will not be taking any salary for the balance of 2020, and my executive team will be taking a 50% cut in pay.”

    How about it, Chamber CEO Jennifer Wesselhoff? How about it, Mayor Sandy Moriarty? How about it, City Manager Justin Clifton? How about it Assistant City Manager Karen Osburn? Do you have the decency and leadership to follow the lead of Marriott CEO Arne Sorenson and take responsibility and show leadership when the times get tough?

    You are the ones who have continued to beat the drum to give more money, more money, more money to the Sedona tourism industry (the chamber) for years, all the while cashing fat paychecks with all those tax free benefits.

    One of the excuses for the extravagant funding for the chamber is that the law requires a certain reinvestment of bed taxes. True enough, but that doesn’t mean it has to be invested with the chamber of commerce. Meet the law at the minimum level, and then spend the rest of that money on what residents want and on improving service and policies that will help non-tourism small business owners do business here. A little tourism is OK, and we would have a little tourism without doing any advertising at all. Zero, zip, nada.

    When it’s time to emerge from the Covid-19 recession, give incentives and help to non-tourism businesses and tourism business owners who are ready to convert their business to something else. A good business person can find a way to make money doing something else besides selling trinkets and $25 hamburgers. Do not help the Lodging Council and trinket sellers by continuing to give money to the chamber of commerce.

    We are the ones who are truly fools if we allow our city government to continue to put all of our eggs into the tourism basket. Anybody who has paid attention over the past decade has seen the gradual uptick in “crossover” diseases such as SARS, MERS, Ebola and others. We will get past the Covid-19 pandemic, but it is a matter of when, not if, the next emerging disease will arrive.

  35. Sad says:

    unfortunately Some of the locals continue to promote Sedona as a safe zone.

    People are running to Sedona from high risk areas putting us at risk.

  36. KC, Sedona says:

    This time no one takes the mayor or city manager word for it because this time the city answers to the citizens and isn’t in control. Open the city’s and the Chamber’s and the nonprofits books since beginning of fiscal year and let’s see the payouts. From the day of the emergency proclamation no expenses by the city other than basic human services are allowed. Everyone gets laid off. The city has no function other than keeping the police and wastewater systems functioning and that’s the city manager’s job not the council. The council can be put on hiatus.

  37. Mike H says:

    You can bet city staff will be working remotely. Which means they will do even less than usual. No meetings, which takes up half their time in a normal day.

    If they were wise they would spent this time looking for a real job. If the city were wise they would require city staff to take leave and vacation .

    Anyone betting on City of Sedona wisdom?

You pay no taxes you live free and you do nothing for the city and you want the mayor to cut her pay to 250.00 over 1000 got laid off last week and you are bitching about tourism get a life
    Paul says: Let’s get this straight. No advertising should be allowed and should have been suspended under the proclamation. Tourists fall under public health and welfare .there is not advertising going on it stopped in January. hope that helps

  39. Sedona Has No Welcome Mat For You says:

    Fleeing virus for resort homes, some find welcome mat yanked
    March 20, 2020

    OCEAN CITY, N.J. (AP) — Some city folk have been fleeing to their second homes in resort areas to ride out the coronavirus outbreak near the beach or the ski slopes. But neighbors in many of those places are yanking the welcome mat — fearing infection and the overwhelming of already stretched resources in sleepy shore and mountain communities.

    In southern New Jersey, Cape May County Freeholder Director Gerald Thornton asked summer home owners, who make up nearly half the property owners, to stay away for at least two weeks.

    “Because the children are out of school, people are taking that as an opportunity to go to the shore,” he said Wednesday. “Instead of a national emergency, they’re taking it like an additional vacation.”

  40. Truth wins says:

    Residents will soon find out we don’t need a City of Sedona. Shut it down, let the counties take over. We don’t need he city picking our pocket at every opportunity. Yes, residents do pay taxes, on our utilities, high sewer rates, high sales taxes, the city takes it’s cut at every opportunity. The city giving the Sedona Chamber millions per year to teach us about sustainability is an insult.

  41. Lois Johnson says:

    If members of the Chamber of Commerce can finance a $12,000 month Pres/CEO then why would they need an annual $2.5 Million city tax rebate? Seems like it should be the other way around and the C of C should be paying the city!

    @Steve Segner: First off Jennifer Wesselhoff? Is paid by dues paying members

  42. @steve Segner says:

    Factually based off of the CHAMBER”S tax returns

    THE PUBLIC pays 80% of chamber’s expenses! Jennifer makes more in one month then the employees working at hotels.

    Why did Jennifer get a 40% increase?

    BS imo The chambers members dues haven’t increased in the last 10 years. 400k from members dues while the TAXPAYERS pay 2.5 a year!!!!

    Best for you not to post as your scam of bs money grab is why sedona has 2 cases of coronavirus imo.

    Why don’t you focus on having your STR chamber members STOP promoting, bringing in more tourists from hotspots into our neighbors. Claiming Sedona is safe.

  43. Bettye says:

    In the meantime, the Sedona Chamber of Commerce is STILL trying to encourage people to come here. This is from their website. It was posted March 21st and remains there today ….

    If you are in the area, you will find brochures and the Experience Sedona Guide, filled with ads and business directories, outside the Visitor Center. We are also offering a list of businesses offering delivery and drive up food service, plus a status update on local businesses and attractions. The closures do not affect the lodging services of Sedona hotels and resorts at this time, although several hotels have chosen to close for the safety of their employees and guests. We recommend Arizona DHS as a good source for Arizona information and the CDC travel guidance as a reference for travel decisions. We wish you the very best and encourage you to follow official guidance on travel best practices. A little shopping among the amazing art and gifts Sedona offers can brighten your day.

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Jennifer Wesselhoff, your responsibility right now is to your community, not trying to eke out every freaking cent you can despite the pandemic.

    Tell people to stay home and stay safe! What is wrong with you?

  44. Bob, west Sedona says:

    The city can stop this by not allowing traffic past Bell Rock’s USFS lands and checking incoming traffic for local VOC or Sedona zips. Anyone without a Sedona zip on their drivers licenses or IDs needs to go back home.It’s being done in dozens of tourist places because for one the Outer Banks in North Carolina began that for their island residents. No hospitals, no visitors, residents first. Locals pay the costs not tourists when their economy and neighbors die due to tourist bringing infections. What are the addresses of the Sedona residents ill with the virus? We might have come across them or socialized and want to be protected.

  45. Oregon Says Stay Home Tourists says:

    The Mayor better get herself in gear and stop genuflecting to the Chamber. The city manager better get in gear or he’ll be looking for a new job after this pandemic. Pandemic’s and cities needing proper guidance will find Clifton not remaining when everyone says get out of town or he can sit in an office and have all his duties removed? http://www.kgw.com/video/news/health/coronavirus/call-goes-out-for-statewide-stay-at-home-order-in-oregon/283-ab3bdf77-eaeb-475d-a098-2111d6e34608?jwsource=cl

  46. Brits - No Option Must Stay Home says:

    Order would be reviewed in three weeks, and relaxed if possible.

    “These rules are not optional,” London Mayor Sadiq Khan said.

    The opposition Labour Party Leader Jeremy Corbyn said he supported the measures, and police chiefs said the moves were sensible, and that they would be working with the government on how to enforce them.

    The government will close all shops selling non-essential goods, Johnson said, including clothing stores, as well as other premises including libraries, playgrounds and outdoor gyms, and places of worship. The British Retail Consortium said shop owners understood the gravity of the situation. All non-essential business will stop.

    Bob, and you know this is nu constitutional bell rock is not even in the city of Sedona. and 179 and 89a are intra state hwy.

  48. Bettye says:

    Read the story “We’re Closed to your Hiking Business” in the Washington post.


    There are medical professionals quoted in this story saying that, yes, it is a good idea to prohibit tourists at this time. All while the Sedona Chamber of Commerce keeps “welcoming” tourists to Sedona on its website and the city manager and city council sit on their hands and do nothing.

    I am saw more cars with California license plates on my street this week.
