As a City we are aware that there are some concerns regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19). We will try to keep you up to date as we receive information.
Yesterday the Governor held a press conference, below are the recommendation presented during that conference:
Gov. Gary Herbert and the Utah Coronavirus Task Force are recommending gatherings of more than 100 people be canceled for two weeks beginning March 16 to slow the spread of COVID-19. Some local governments have also closed many public services, including recreation centers, libraries, and senior centers.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has canceled all group activities worldwide, including sacrament meetings. That announcement followed previous decisions about the April General Conference and missionary trainings.
Public schools will not be closed statewide, Superintendent Sydnee Dickson said Thursday. Instead, closures will be decided at the local level based on advice from health officials. At least one school district has closed their schools, and some private and charter schools have also canceled classes.
The Utah System of Higher Education, meanwhile, is closing college and university campuses. Wherever possible, classes will be conducted online. Westminster College and Brigham Young University, both private schools, have also closed campuses and move classes online.
State officials are encouraging everyone to take serious precautions, especially staying at least six-feet away from other people and staying home if showing any symptoms.
