Governor Gary R. Herbert extended the “Stay Safe, Stay Home” directive to all Utahns through May 1. This is not a shelter in place order, but rather the next step in the Urgent Phase laid out in the Utah Leads Together plan. This directive seeks to make clear what individuals and businesses should do to slow the spread of COVID-19 in our state and communities.
Everyone should practice social distancing right now.
Social distancing means to stay away from other people as much as you can. Social distancing is important because it slows the spread of COVID-19. Avoiding crowds protects you, your family and the community. Try to stay at least 6 feet away from other people. Stay home as much as possible. With very few exceptions, cancel all get-togethers.
Work from home if possible.
Businesses should allow employees to telework immediately, if feasible. We encourage business leaders to make teleworking available to as many employees as possible and expand what they may already be doing in this regard.
Avoid gathering In groups
This includes gatherings such as church and religious services, concerts, conferences, and other events or places where large numbers of people gather together. If you are immunocompromised or have underlying medical conditions which put you at an increased risk for severe symptoms of COVID-19, you should not attend any mass gatherings. Stay home if you are sick. We ask employers for leniency and tolerance for employees who are sick and need to stay home to help prevent the spread of this disease.
