SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — In a news conference Wednesday, Salt Lake County officials announced precautionary measures businesses must take as they move to reopen starting this Friday, May 1, when the state transitions to the next phase of its COVID-19 recovery plan.
Restaurants, personal services, gyms and entertainment venues may all reopen under restrictions under the county’s plan, but Salt Lake County Health Department Executive Director Gary Edwards said residents must wear face coverings at each location.
The coverings can only be removed for activities like eating and active exercising, Edwards said.
“We still need to stay at home as much as possible,” he added. “If you feel sick, you must stay home.”
