Governor Herbert announced Tuesday (April 28th) that Utah would be easing COVID-19 restrictions starting May 1st

The Governor announced that the state would move from High Risk (Red) to Moderate Risk (Orange) starting this Friday, May 1st.  The move allows for a less-restrictive but still limited level of operation for some businesses.  This new risk level allows groups of up to 20 people to gather instead of the current 10.  The move may also allow limited dine-in options at restaurants and the possibility of close contact businesses like gyms and salons to re-open under strict guidelines.

Schools remain closed and social distancing guidelines remain in effect.  Details for specific businesses under the plan can be found here.

The latest order from the Salt Lake County Health Department expires at midnight on Friday also, unless modified or rescinded.  Salt Lake City Mayor Erin Mendenhall and County Mayor Jenny Wilson have not yet rescinded their respective health orders.
