COVID-19 in Southwest Utah
SOUTHWEST UTAH COVID-19 CASES – May 7, 2021
(Next update will be posted on Monday, May 10th)
UPDATE: As of May 4, Utah has reached the COVID-19 reduction goals of House Bill 294, which cancels all remaining COVID-19 health orders. This essentially means that there are no longer mandates on gathering limits and social distancing. Masks are still required at K-12 schools until the end of the school year, and at state-run facilities until May 31. Private businesses and institutions can still choose to require masks and distancing on their property.
We have moved daily district data into the following table, for informational purposes, showing current COVID-19 activity in each county along with district information.
