SALT LAKE CITY-- The Utah Department of Health issued an order extending closure of dine-in options at food service establishments until April 15.The order also reiterates strict hygiene and public health standards that must be followed at dining establishments, including specific cleaning practices and monitoring employees for symptoms.

The order is an extension of previously issued public health orders.  It also institutes new requirements for establishments where lines of people form to pick up food. Wherever possible, restaurants should prohibit the formation of a line. Where not possible, they must require that individuals in line be separated by at least six feet, or a physical barrier that prevents the transmission of respiratory droplets.
The order is effective immediately and remains in effect until April 15.
