Office of the Governor

On Thursday Gov. Herbert gave his weekly COVID-19 update. He also used it as an opportunity to announce steps he is taking to address police brutality in Utah.

In Monday's press conference to update the state on the coronavirus, state epidemiologist Angela Dunn said Utah is increasing community tracing efforts to get a better sense of how far the virus is spreading as businesses and restaraunts plan to start reopening. She said while the current tracing efforts question the past two days after a person receives a positive test result, Utahns with the virus will now be asked to report contacts from the past seven days of being tested. 

Confirmed cases of the coronavirus in Utah are now at 257 people and over 5,000 have been reportedly tested.
