    A Message from Mayor Jenny Wilson

    We heard back from the State — our request to make face coverings a requirement across Salt Lake County has been granted and will go into effect tonight at midnight.

    Wearing a face covering correctly is one of the easiest things we can do to help our local businesses, and or community as whole, successfully weather this challenging time.

    Jenny Wilson
    Salt Lake County Mayor



    In Salt Lake County, face coverings will be required:

    🔸At public gatherings, indoor or outside, where social distancing is not possible.
    🔸While waiting outside or inside retail and other public locations, including bars and restaurants, until seated.
    Face coverings will not be required:
    🔸Outdoors when social distancing is easily maintained.
    🔸On a person with a health condition that would be made worse by wearing a face covering.
    🔸On children under 2 years old.
    🔸When wearing a face covering would prevent someone from doing the essential functions of their job or work.
    🔸When wearing a face covering is not reasonable, such as while swimming or engaging in strenuous physical activity.
    The goal of the requirement is not enforcement or to penalize anyone; the goal is to send a strong, clear message about the gravity of our current COVID circumstances and the importance of face coverings in effectively addressing this concerning data.
