Cache Moves To 'Moderate' Transmission Risk

Gov. Spencer Cox announced Cache County is moving to “Moderate” in the Utah’s COVID-19 transmission index on Thursday.

This is the first time the county’s transmission risk has been downgraded since it was labeled a “High” risk area in October. Cache joined Davis, Grand, Salt Lake, Sanpete and Wasatch in the move for a total of 13 “Moderate” counties — “some of which have been in 'High risk' since the transmission risk system began,” Cox said in his weekly COVID-19 update.


“It means 2.2 million Utahns now live in 'Moderate' transmission counties,” the governor said. “In fact, 95% of the economy has been open for some time. … The important thing is there are no restrictions in gatherings in ‘Moderate’ … so long as they are wearing masks.” Read the rest of the story on HJnews.com.
