Current cases: A total of 29 Utah residents and seven visitors have tested positive for the virus. As updated today, that is eight new cases with residents and three with visitors. The new resident cases were in Davis (1), Salt Lake County (2), Summit (2), Wasatch (1), Tooele, and Weber-Morgan (1). Salt Lake had two new visitor cases and Summit had one more visitor case.

Diamond Princess: Sunday evening, 23 passengers from the Diamond Princess cruise ship that docked in Oakland last week retuned to the state. None of the passengers who returned have any symptoms of COVID-19 and have either tested negative or are waiting for test results.

 

Slopes Shut Down: Most Utah ski resorts suspended or closed operations. (Updated)

Schools, churches canceled: Beginning today, Utah's public schools will cancel all classes and close their buildings to most activities to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Many local governments have closed public buildings, including recreation centers, libraries, and senior centers.

The Utah System of Higher Education, meanwhile, is canceling all in-person classes on college and university campuses. Wherever possible, classes will be conducted online. Westminster College and Brigham Young University, both private schools, have also moved classes online.

State officials are encouraging everyone to take serious precautions, especially staying at least six-feet away from other people and staying home if showing any symptoms.
