Evidence found in Coconino County of community transmission of COVID-19

Coconino County Health officials have found evidence of community transmission of COVID-19 in Coconino County. Community transmission happens when there are confirmed cases of COVID-19 and there is no source of infection identified in some of the cases and it cannot be directly traced back to a known exposure. Due to the identification of community transmission, and to reduce the spread of COVID-19, health officials are reinforcing the importance of practicing social distancing, frequent hand washing and staying home when sick. The County initiated COVID-19 drive-up specimen collection site will change as a result of limited supplies and resources. There is only one site operating from 10-to-3 today at the Coconino Community College East Campus on Fourth Street in Flagstaff. This will continue while supplies last. Both Coconino and Yavapai Counties are having trouble getting more testing supplies and protective equipment.


  1. Close all trails that put people climbing over each other. Sedona has thousands on Cathedral Rock and Devils Bridge from all over the world who may as well be dancing with each other, handle same handholds,puffing and gasping in each other’s faces. If you want to provide protection. Provide sensible enforcement!
