SALT LAKE CITY (Nov. 6, 2020) – Today the Utah Department of Health reported 2,987 cases of COVID-19 and 17 new deaths. Gov. Gary R. Herbert released the following statement: 

“The numbers being reported today are exactly what we’ve been warning Utah residents about for weeks. They are why we’ve implored Utahns to adopt the behaviors that could have prevented us from reaching this point.

COVID-19 is spreading rampantly and uncontrolled in our communities. Getting ahead of this trend will become more and more difficult with every passing day. In the coming days I will be announcing additional policies designed to address this ongoing surge.”
