Gov. Gary Herbert speaks at a press conference May 28, 2020

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Gov. Gary Herbert has issued an executive order moving Grand County, Magna and West Valley City to the yellow or low-risk phase.

The governor issued the order Friday afternoon.

Salt Lake City, Bluff and Mexican Hat will remain in the orange or moderate-risk phase for the time being.

“After consulting with the county health department we’ve requested to keep Salt Lake City in the orange phase because our data is not showing a significant enough change since May 1 to warrant a shift to yellow,” said Salt Lake City Mayor Erin Mendenhall in a statement Thursday.

Herbert also said parts of the state could move to the green or “new normal” phase in the near future.

“Our ability to open this up and get back to a kind-of new normal is really based on individual compliance and what we’re willing to do and do our part to make sure we stay safe and keep those around us safe,” Herbert said.
