COVID-19 Update June 12th, 2020

Below is a simplified listing of all the various restrictions and guidelines due to COVID-19.  Kane County is the first in the State to transition to the Green Phase as discussed below.  In many ways, life in Kane County will return to normal.  However, general guidelines for staying home if you are sick, practicing social distancing in public, maintaining good hygiene practices, and vigilantly protecting the high-risk population are part of our “new normal.”

Federal Guidelines:

You can find specific federal guidelines for businesses and personal hygiene here.

State Guidelines and Restrictions:

The State of Utah has issued a long term plan to address the pandemic called Utah Leads Together.  The newest addition, Utah Leads Together 3.0 can be found here.  The plan includes a three phased approach beginning with the Urgent phase, then moving to the Stabilization phase (May through October), and then to the Recovery phase.  On May 1 Governor Herbert announced that we have moved to the Stabilization Phase. There are also color coded levels of risk with specific social distancing guidelines for individuals and businesses by industry. Red is for High Risk, Orange is for Moderate Risk, Yellow is for Low Risk and Green is for New Normal Risk.  A complete copy of these Phased Health Guidelines (currently version 4.6.1) can be found here.  Our local health department, Southwest Utah Public Health Department, has a user friendly site to view the guidelines which you can access here.

Kane County has transitioned to the Green (New Normal Risk) Phase.  Most of the rest of the State is currently under the Yellow (Low-Risk) Phase.  Salt Lake City is still in the Orange (Moderate-Risk) Phase.  A summary of Green guidelines for the General Public is set forth further below.  All of these guidelines are legally enforceable under the law other than the requirement for the general public to wear face coverings.  For the guidelines that apply to employers, please review the Phased Health Guidelines for your specific industry.  Under Green, all industries are allowed to open with social distancing restrictions in place However, high risk individuals should continue to take extreme precautions.

Summary of Green Guidelines for the General Public:

• General public follows current federal and local public health precautions, which include:

• Wash hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds

• Use hand sanitizer frequently

• Avoid touching your face

• Cover coughs or sneezes (e.g. into a tissue, sleeve, or elbow; not hands)

• Avoid handshaking or unnecessary physical contact

• Give sick family members their own room if possible and keep the door closed

• Have only one family member care for the sick individual

• Stay home if you have symptoms of COVID-19 (fever of 100.4 or above, cough, trouble breathing, sore throat, sudden change in taste or smell, and muscle aches or pains)

• Use of face coverings in business and social settings is encouraged when physical distancing is not feasible

All business are open and provided with best practices instead of any specific restrictions.  Please refer to page 24 of the Phased Health Guidelines for these details.

Under the Green or New Normal Risk Phase, although there are very few restrictions imposed, it is important to remember that we cannot return to business as usual.  Social distancing and other good hygiene practices are still strongly encouraged.  Instead of having strict mandates to ensure continued safety of our community, each of us as individuals need to govern our own actions to help keep all of us safe.

The State Department of Health recommends that healthcare providers and testing sites test ALL individuals with any symptom of COVID-19 no matter how mild.  The symptoms are fever of 100.4 or above, cough, trouble breathing, sore throat, sudden change in taste or smell, and muscle aches or pains.    You can find the nearest testing center here.  The Kane County Hospital is our local location for collecting samples that are then processed by ARUP.  You should call the hospital first to determine if you should be tested and how to proceed with testing. 435-644-5811. Click here for more information from Kane County Hospital.

For other up to date information regarding the state of the pandemic in Utah please visit coronavirus.utah.gov.
