Logan is a small city that is thriving in the United States, despite the pandemic, according to a recent article on governing.com.

The article stated that Logan, Utah; Idaho Falls, Idaho; and Owensboro, Kentucky are three communities with relatively low unemployment rates amidst the nation-wide pandemic related job loss.

Commonalities between these three cities that the article cited as reasons for the lower unemployment numbers include each city being home to hospitals and food manufacturing and having an economy that does not rely on tourism or energy production.
