May 14, 2020. Governor Herbert announced that most cities in Salt Lake County will move from “orange” phase to “yellow” phase with the exception of Salt Lake City, Magna and West Valley City.
Support will continue to be provided to those cities with targeted interventions, education and outreach. For more information on what this means for you, visit the state’s website at https://coronavirus.utah.gov/utahs-low-risk-phase/
Most of Utah shifted from a moderate “orange” risk level to a lower “yellow” status starting May 16, 2020. Utah’s Governor Gary Herbert said that there is now a small enough risk of COVID-10 spreading in some areas that the restrictions can be relaxed. The exceptions include Salt Lake City and West Valley City, as well as Summit Wasatch and Grand counties.
