COVID-19 and South Salt Lake's Resonse
On March 11, 2020 the World Health Organization declared the COVID-19 outbreak a global pandemic. Throughout the pandemic, South Salt Lake has taken precautions to ensure the safety of our community members while continuing to provide essential services.
As COVID-19 case counts have declined in recent months with the rise of vaccination rates, the City has begun to reopen and reinstate community programs and events. As of June 1, 2021, all city facilities have been reopened to the public. In accordance with CDC guidelines, fully vaccinated individuals are not required to wear face coverings or social distance in city facilities. However, unvaccinated individuals will still be required to wear face coverings in city facilites.
Current Operational Guidelines
While the City has begun to reopen, we will continue to moniter COVID-19 cases and take steps to prevent transmission in our communities. The City of South Salt Lake -- and the State of Utah -- are operating under the updated COVID-19 Transmission Index. This index allows for greater flexibility when analyzing rapidly-evolving transmission data, and will place counties in High, Moderate or Low transmission levels based solely on that data. We will continue to take guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Salt Lake County Health Department as we determine our response to the continually evolving pandemic.
