Utah Gov. to Increase COVID-19 Restrictions in Two Cities

September 23, 2020

SALT LAKE CITY — Gov. Gary Herbert will increase pandemic restrictions in two Utah cities as COVID-19 cases continue to surge in the state.

Herbert is imposing new restrictions in the cities of Provo and Orem that will limit social gatherings to 20 people starting Wednesday.

The cities are in Utah County, where cases have grown by 81% in the last week. The county accounted for 42% of the state’s cases despite having only 20% of state’s population.

Local leaders are considering a countywide mask mandate, but the state has not set a deadline for how quickly they must make that decision.
