Utah Public Health Association Urges Utahns To Continue Mask Wearing After Mandate Ends
According to a report from KUTV, the Utah Public Health Association is encouraging Utahns to continue wearing masks in public, even after the mask mandate ends on Saturday. The association said until every eligible person is vaccinated, the three best steps to take in order to combat COVID-19 are masking, hand washing and social distancing. It said the better Utahns are at wearing masks and following other COVID-19 guidelines now, “the more confidently we can return to normalcy sooner than later.”
UPHA applauded Salt Lake City Mayor Erin Mendenhall for extending the city’s mask mandate and also said it supports Governor Spencer Cox’s decision to maintain mask mandates in state facilities.
