The COVID-19 pandemic is not stopping visitors from coming to Arizona

Travelers walk with their luggage at Terminal 4 on Nov. 12, 2020, at Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix.

The COVID-19 pandemic is not stopping visitors from coming to Arizona, and there’s little preventing travelers from bringing the virus with them.

Sky Harbor Airport is busy, Arizona’s sunny weather makes it a popular spot for people who are choosing to travel, and Trip Advisor just named Sedona and Scottsdale as top Thanksgiving destinations.

The state of Arizona is also under pressure to revive an industry whose downturn is estimated to have lost the state $10 billion in travel-related spending so far this year.

But when it comes to preventing the spread of COVID-19 among travelers to Arizona, there are few aggressive interventions.

While some other airports like New York, Dallas, Oakland and San Francisco have started offering rapid COVID-19 testing, Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix is not one of them.
