The Arizona Chapter of the Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association International (HSMAI-AZ) and KickCovid.US are teaming up to help travelers coming to the state.

KickCovid.US is a free website where visitors can learn which restaurants and hotels are open and what COVID-19 safety measures they are taking. You can search to see which hotels and restaurants are open, whether guests are wearing masks and if social distancing is in effect. The site gives people information they need to safely engage in activities and to give businesses and other organizations a way to let customers know they are ready to offer safe services.

The website was launched in August, starting with a small group of volunteers in Virginia. It is a grass-roots movement that depends on crowdsourcing to populate the data. The effort in Arizona is being supported by HSMAI-AZ.
