SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — Gov. Gary Herbert announced all of Utah’s public schools will undergo a “soft closure” for two weeks, beginning Monday, March 16, to help implement social distancing and slow the spread of the novel coronavirus.

During the two-week period, schools will continue to serve meals and buildings will be staffed.

“We’re not going to close the doors at schools for those folks,” Herbert said. “Providing meals and a roof over their head and a place to go.”
