Utah's Statewide 
Mask Mandate Ended May 4, 2021

Grand County’s county-wide mask mandate has been terminated now that the State of Utah has met all three thresholds established in House Bill 294:

  • The state's 14-day case rate is less than 191 per 100,000 people; 
  • The statewide seven-day average COVID-19 ICU utilization is less than 15%;
  • And the Department of Health has provided notice that 1,633,000 prime doses of a COVID-19 vaccine have been allocated to the state. 

 The State is still requiring masks to be worn in schools until June 15 or the school year ends, whichever comes first. 

 Grand County will still require masks in all County facilities and on County property. 

 The City of Moab will still require masks to be worn indoors in all City facilities and buildings at this time due to Grand County's status as High Transmission Risk, and the ongoing increase of COVID-19 cases in our community. 

Private businesses, at their discretion, may still require patrons and employees to wear masks.
