When it comes to health, everyone wants what’s best for themselves and their families. We have all been concerned about developments worldwide and here in the United States related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
The City continues to have regular briefings from State and Federal partners that have been very informative. The Federal response to the Coronavirus is no longer containment, but mitigation. What that means in a practical way is that they are attempting to do everything possible to SLOW the spread of COVID-19. Slowing the spread of this virus will add time to all of our collective efforts and also allows for a more measured approach from our first responders and medical communities. A slower spread of the virus should also help avoid medical teams being overwhelmed or possibly infected and taken out of service. It is very important for all of us to do our part to limit and slow the spread of all illness. We urge you to become familiar with recommended hygiene procedures and then calmly implement whatever changes you need to in order to protect yourself and those around you.
In order to protect the health of the public and our employees, it has become necessary to close our facilities to walk-in traffic. We will continue to help citizens remotely, or by appointment. If you need to make an appointment, call 801-335-8700 for issues requiring an in-person meeting. We would ask, however, that if you can accomplish what you need to by calling or emailing City personnel, that would be preferred.

The national Centers for Disease Control and the State of Utah have shared great resources with local government to help educate our communities. We invite you to review these websites and share them with your families. Visit the State’s website at: coronavirus.utah.gov.
