COVID-19 Public Announcement & Tooele City Press Release

Tooele City Operations during COVID-19

Updated October 23, 2020:

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.

Please do your part to help slow and prevent the spread of Covid at this time by following these guidelines:

*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:

Levels of Transmission
State leaders are moving to a new strategy in their fight against COVID-19. Instead of designating the risk of the virus under a color-coded system, the state will employ a new index that ties restrictions to local case numbers and testing rates. Counties will be placed in one of three transmission levels: High, Moderate, or Low.

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/.
