Tooele City Operations during COVID-19
NEWS RELEASE: Tooele County Moving to “High” Level on COVID-19 Transmission Index on October 22, 2020. You can watch the news release here https://fb.watch/1iK4MbyxRS/.
Tooele County (and Tooele City) will be at the “high” level from October 22, 2020 – November 5, 2020, when new data will be released and analyzed.
In the news release the message was shared by Governor Herbert and other professionals that this is not to scare anyone or to keep anyone from living their lives. This will not last forever.
*Limit your social gatherings to 10 or fewer people. Gatherings with organizational oversight are not where the spread of Covid is happening. It is at our family parties, weddings, and other private social gatherings.
*Wear your masks
*Wash your hands often and continue good personal hygiene practices
*Keep a 6 foot or more physical distance from others outside of your household.

Updated October 16, 2020:
Currently Tooele County, including Tooele City, is designated at the moderate level. For the next two weeks (until October 29th) which Utah’s Acting Public Health Director, Rich Saunders, has described as a two-week “circuit breaker” social gatherings are limited to 10 or fewer people and masks are to be worn in public indoor settings, and to be worn outdoors when physical distancing is not feasible. This is all in an effort to reduce the high rate of transmission that we are currently experiencing. Read details and more about the coronvirus at https://coronavirus.utah.gov/.

Tooele City Residents… Among everything else that we are experiencing in the world around us, Tooele City’s Reclamation Plant is seeing an influx of baby wipes entering our sewer system. Only flush legit toilet paper and your waste. You don’t want a sewer backup in yours or your neighbor’s home. Baby wipes, napkins, paper towels, dryer sheets, hygiene products…whatever your makeshift product is – don’t flush it – trash it. Thanks for your help to keep our City clean, healthy, and safe!
