Flagstaff sees tourism decline during pandemic

The city is still welcoming visitors but wants them to take precautions to prevent spreading the coronavirus.

Like many municipalities across Arizona, the city of Flagstaff has seen revenues drop during the pandemic. During summer the city usually welcomes an influx of visitors looking to escape the heat, and tourism generates hundreds of millions of dollars for the city each year, according to Trace Ward, director of the Convention and Visitors Bureau. Ward explained that Flagstaff is still welcoming visitors, but the city wants them to do their part to protect themselves and others from the coronavirus.
