Utah State Parks

State parks are open to all visitors. Park visitors are advised to recreate responsibly by staying home if sick, honoring the social distance of others, avoiding crowded trailheads and practicing "pack in and pack out" etiquette to help keep parks clean. See the latest information.

Cities

Several cities currently fall within high risk levels of transmission, but the Transmission Index guidelines permit operation of most businesses with a range of health and safety measures to protect business owners and patrons. 

Travel With Care

Follow these adapted tips from the U.S. Forest Service to plan a fun and safe Utah outing:

  1. Plan ahead. Review the websites and social media that offer information on local conditions. Visitors are also encouraged to reach out to local tourism contacts and land managers with any additional questions.

  2. Respect the social distance of others. Everyone wants to safely enjoy public lands. Please make sure to stay at least six feet away from other visitors as recommend by the CDC. Wear face coverings in settings where social distancing measures are difficult to maintain. To avoid crowding, select low-traffic locations and non-peak hours. 

  3. Stay home if you feel sick. Follow CDC guidance on personal hygiene and social distancing before and during your visit. Stay up-to-date on latest instruction from the Utah Coronavirus Task Force.

  4. Support local. Find ways to support the local communities that surround these natural areas. Stock up with groceries locally, stop in an artisan shop or eat at a restaurant in addition to campfire meals.

  5. Travel responsibly and reduce impact. Familiarize yourself with the travel ethic we call Forever Mighty and learn how to do your part to protect and preserve.
