 UPDATE (August 14, 2020) – A recent public health order has changed references to “risk” to “restriction.” So in this blog post, references to “Moderate Risk” really mean “Moderate Restriction Level.”

SALT LAKE CITY (July 10, 2020) – Gov. Herbert announced today that he is extending the Executive Order pertaining to the mandate of face coverings to be worn in all state facilities. He also extended Utah’s Health Risk Status, leaving Salt Lake City in Moderate Risk, or Orange, ten counties in the Normal Risk, or Green and the rest of the state in Low Risk, or Yellow. 

Both orders will remain in effect until July 24 at 11:59 p.m.
