ST. GEORGE, Utah — The City of St. George canceled a number of events due to the surge in hospitalizations from COVID-19. The decision to cancel these events comes after the city consulted with healthcare providers. 

The city is temporarily suspending these events to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 since they bring large groups of people together. The canceled events include but are not limited to: 

  • The Snow Canyon Half Marathon: November 7, 2020
  • The Skillz and Thrillz Challenge: November 14, 2020
  • The Seegmiller Farm Harvest Days & Turkey Trot: November 21, 2020 
  • Kick-Off to Christmas & Santa Dash: November 30, 2020 

How To Prevent the Spread of COVID-19 Coronavirus

COVID-19 coronavirus spreads person to person, similar to the common cold and the flu. So, to prevent it from spreading:

  • Wash hands frequently and thoroughly, with soap and water, for at least 20 seconds.
  • Don’t touch your face.
  • Keep children and those with compromised immune systems away from someone who is coughing or sneezing (in this instance, at least six feet)
  • If there is an outbreak near you, practice social distancing (stay at home, instead of going to the movies, sports events, or other activities.)
  • Get a flu shot.
