Summit County, Utah (May 15, 2020) — On Thursday, May 14, 2020, the Governor issued a new executive order which reduced the majority of the state to Low Risk (Yellow), but specifically did not change the Moderate Risk (Orange) level in Summit County. On May 14, Summit County Council adopted Joint Public Health Order 2020-06, leaving Summit County at this Moderate or Orange risk level. This Order takes effect at 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, May 16 and will be reviewed in one week by the Governor’s Office.
The intent of this Order is to remain at risk level Orange, but ease some of the business specific protocols in a manner so as to allow a phased normalization of business and commerce, while at the same time continuing to require social distancing. This Order is aligned with the Governor’s Moderate Risk Level Order, aside from four (4) areas deemed to be at increased risk in Summit County and therefore in need of an additional layer of specific protocols:
- Restaurants / Food Services
- Indoor Recreation
- Accommodations / Lodging
- Arts, Special Events and Entertainment
All public and private gatherings of more than 20 people are still prohibited.
