Utah Governor Gary Herbert announced new travel guidelines Wednesday to help monitor and reduce the spread of COVID-19.  Utah Public Radio will broadcast a special one-hour program with Gordon Larsen, Policy Director for the Governor's Office, Utah State Senator Lyle Hillyard, Bear River Health Department Director Lloyd Berentzen Thursday morning at 10am. Tom Williams will host the special COVID-19 CONVERSATION to address questions about ways and why Utah is monitoring travel across state borders, among other topics.
