COVID-19 Guidelines for Your Stay

Sedona Mago Center for Well-Being and Retreat is committed to the health of our guests and staff. To our great delight, we have found that attendees of programs in 2020, have been able to have transformative experiences while following all Arizona public health protocols. As we look to provide optimum experiences for all guests while attending to the lessons our operations staff have learned this past year, management has decided to make changes to our arrival policy in 2021. 

For our guests to have the best spiritual experience, we are updating our policies.  These policies are designed to not only comply with federal, state, and local regulations but to most importantly allay any fears that attendees might have regarding other guests during their visit. It is our desire to keep Sedona Mago Retreat a “fear-free” zone by following these guidelines:


We have adjusted our arrival policy:

  • Provide either (1) a negative COVID test result or (2) proof of full vaccination card/document. See additional information and requirements for both options below.
  • Masks are optional and are available at the retreat center for anyone who needs them.
Negative COVID Test

Please provide a negative COVID test result, whether paper or electronic, upon arrival to the retreat center. Tests should be conducted no earlier than five (5) days prior to arrival.  All versions of negative test results are accepted. If you wish, electronic versions of the test can be emailed to welcome@sedonamagoretreat.org.

Positive COVID test results or previously tested positive or COVID like symptoms

All guests who test positive for COVID and/or have a current infection will not be able to attend the retreat center. Guests should contact the welcome center via email or phone to reschedule their program.

If you tested positive for COVID and/or had COVID-like symptoms in the past, we will still require a negative COVID test conducted within five (5) days of your arrival.

Prior to your visit, please make sure you are not experiencing any COVID symptoms such as fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headaches, loss of taste and/or smell, sore throat, congestion, runny nose, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea. 

If you fall under this category, please contact the welcome center at welcome@sedonamagoretreat.org and provide your name, phone number, and any relevant information in regards to your situation.


Management is closely watching the COVID situation and staying abreast of new developments.  The CDC and experts are still learning more about COVID and information about the spreading of COVID is still being researched. 

According to the CDC, as of March 8, 2021, people are considered fully vaccinated for COVID after 2 or more weeks have passed since receiving their final dosage/shot.

A fully vaccinated guest with a minimum of 2 or more weeks after final dose: 

  • Arriving guests are required to email or show physical proof of vaccination
  • Get tested if experiencing COVID symptoms

Vaccinated guests without the minimum 2 or more weeks after the final dose:

  • Will still be required to provide a negative COVID test and adhere to the COVID arrival policy as stated above

This policy is effective immediately and shall remain in effect until July 31, 2021.  Sedona Mago reserves the right to adjust and change our policies as needed.  We appreciate your understanding and look forward to serving you. 

Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact the welcome center and we will be glad to assist you. Have a wonderful 2021.
