In order to provide theoretical support for the cultivation of market confidence and the recovery of tourism prosperity after the new crown pneumonia epidemic, this study uses a structural equation model to explore the mechanism of public risk perception, negative sentiment, and long/short-distance travel willingness during the epidemic. The results show: (1) Risk perception has a significant negative impact on the public's long-distance travel willingness; (2) Risk perception significantly positively affects negative sentiment; (3) Negative sentiment significantly positively affects public long-distance travel willingness; (4) Negative Sexual sentiment has a partial mediating effect between the public's risk perception and long-distance travel willingness. Finally, the research provides suggestions for the further development of the tourism industry after the epidemic from three aspects: the government, tourism companies, and industry associations.
