All restaurants, bars, and food service establishments in the state of Utah are being ordered to suspend dine-in operations for a period of two weeks. Gatherings of more than 10 people will also be prohibited during that time.
The Salt Palace Convention Center and the Mountain America Expo Center will be closed as of Monday, March 16, until further notice amid concerns about preventing a widespread coronavirus outbreak in Salt Lake County.
If you have symptoms like a cough, fever, or shortness of breath, you should not go to work. Instead, call your supervisor and let them know that you are experiencing symptoms that are consistent with COVID-19.
Governor Gary Herbert and the Utah Coronavirus Task Force are recommending that any gathering of more than 100 people be cancelled beginning Monday, March 16, for at least two weeks. These measures are intended to slow the spread of COVID-19 in the state.
“Our number one focus is preparing for the arrival of novel coronavirus,” Gov. Gary R. Herbert said. “Issuing this declaration now allows us to take additional proactive steps that will make a big difference in how effectively we can respond.”
