Havasu Falls in the US to remain shut indefinitely to protect the region against Coronavirus

The very famous Havasu Falls in Arizona, United States has decided to shut down its doors indefinitely given the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. The decision was taken after the Tribal Council vote on December 17. A resolution of keeping the falls closed to visitors indefinitely was passed by the council to protect the region from COVID-19 spread.

Supai Village in Arizona, which is home to the world-famous Grand Canyon and Havasu Falls has not reported any COVID-19 case till date. So the council has decided to keep the tourist attraction closed to prevent potential spread.

Council’s chairwoman Eva Kissoon said, “In order to further protect the health and welfare of the Havasupai people and tribal residents, the Council finds it necessary to continue the suspension of its tourism operation until further notice,”.

As per the reservation’s official website, people who had reservations to visit the destination between March 15, 2020 and January 6, 2021, can reschedule their visits to 2021. There’s another interesting provision for those who cannot cancel their reservations. Such people can partake in the tribe’s transfer system. This particular system will allow them to get their money back on their original purchase minus 10% if only someone else buys it.

Though the Havasu Waterfall is a good hike from the Grand Canyon, it is absolutely popular among visitors. Earlier in 2020, the Havasupai Nation had started a GoFundMe project to support its workers.
