As Utah moves into moderate and low risk phases, media briefings have been held once a week, typically Wednesday or Thursday at the State Capitol in conjunction with the Governor’s office. (Timing of the daily briefing differs depending on availability and other announcements. A banner will be placed at the top of this website approximately 24 hours before and during the briefing.)

The briefings will be broadcast on Utah Governor Gary Herbert’s Facebook page.

Case counts will be updated daily at approximately 12:45 p.m. on the UDOH dashboard.

COVID-19 Press Releases from the Governor’s office are posted here.
