A travel advisory has been issued for three Utah Counties.
TriCounty Health Department has issued a local travel advisory, advising residents of Daggett, Duchesne, and Uintah Counties, to restrict all non-essential travel outside their community.
“In an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 throughout the state we are asking residents to strongly reconsider any recreational, leisure, and non-essential work-related travel that will take them outside of our communities,” TriCounty Health Officer Jordan Mathis says.
“Although we currently do not have any confirmed cases of COVID-19 in our three counties at this time, we are asking residents to continue to take reasonable measures to keep it that way as long as possible,”
“Compliance with this advisory will aid our statewide efforts to limit the speed of the spread of the virus and prevent our local and state healthcare resources from becoming overburdened,” he added.
The travel advisory will remain in effect until further notice.
