The COVID-19 Conversation III: Utah's Transition To Yellow Risk On Tuesday's Access Utah

UPR has been presenting special programs that we’re calling COVID-19 CONVERSATIONS, answering your questions about the pandemic. We’re going to resume our conversation on the next Access Utah.

As the state moves from Orange to Yellow level, we’ll ask what that means and how it affects you. We’ll ask what you think? Are things moving too fast? Too slow? What are your thoughts at this point as we all navigate the pandemic? Our guests will include Sen. Lyle Hillyard, R-Logan; Gordon Larsen, Policy Director with the Governor’s Office; and Brady Bradford, Health Director with the Southeast Utah Health Department; and Farrin Wiese, Health Promotion Director with the Bear River Health Department. You can get your question or comment to us right now by email to
