Coronavirus (COVID-19): Playing it Safe on Your Vacation

Take Smart Precautions

The health and well being of our valued guests and staff is our top priority. We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak and taking necessary precautions and preventive measures as outlined by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO). 

At check-in, your welcome packet will include a sanitizing kit with alcohol wipes and hand sanitizers. Automatic hand sanitizing dispensers will be available at the front desk, recreation barn, shower houses, the entrance to Ray’s restaurant and other locations around the ranch resort. Zion Ponderosa staff will also be on duty to disinfect all hard surfaces, including Jeep handles, saddles, doorknobs, restaurant tables, and more.

Help us prevent the spread of germs:

  • Wash hands thoroughly for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer
  • Avoid touching your nose, mouth and eyes
  • Avoid shaking hands
  • Cover your cough and sneezes
  • Practice social distancing and avoid large crowds
  • Breathe plenty of fresh air while enjoying an outdoor experience


Rest Easy

When you visit Zion Ponderosa on the quiet east side of Zion National Park during your Utah travels, you’ll appreciate our efforts to ensure a clean and healthy environment for your getaway. Rest easy each night in your own private vacation home, cabin or glamping tent, beneath East Zion’s clear, starry skies. By staying in a Zion Ponderosa private vacation home or cabin suite, you control your environment away from crowded hotel lobbies and connecting hallways. You’ll have access to your own bathroom and can even cook your own meals. Glampers and campers can rest assured that we are enhancing deep cleaning efforts in all lodging and shared facilities.

Benefits of the great outdoors:

Spending time in the great outdoors can lead to significant health benefits, yet these days we all have real concerns about safe travel due to coronavirus (COVID-19). While it’s smart to err on the side of caution by avoiding overcrowded places like big cities, cruises and theme parks, you can save your vacation with a getaway to the great outdoors.

Dr. Richard Dawood, a travel medicine specialist and medical director for the Fleet Street Clinic in London, advises travelers to look to the outdoors as a way to avoid crowds. “If I wanted to be totally risk-averse I would take an outdoorsy-type trip,” he says, “—enjoy the national parks, hiking, camping or safari.”
