COVID-19 Meetings and Conventions Updates

Attendee health and safety is a priority to everyone in Salt Lake County. Operations at the airport, hotels and convention center are all in compliance with the health department guidelines. Over 120 restaurants and bars are offering take-out or dine in service, and ordinances are being eased to allow additional outdoor seating. Movie theaters are open with social distancing parameters, and the hotels are experiencing a continual rise in occupancy. The team at Visit Salt Lake can offer multi-venue and outdoor options for social distancing with livestream to ensure your needs are met.

On Nov. 9, 2020 Utah's Governor declared a state of emergency to address hospital overcrowding. It includes a mask mandate for the entire state, limiting social gatherings to household-only until Nov. 23, 2020, and other rules regarding extracurricular activities and students at higher education institutions. Detailed answers to frequently asked questions about the state of emergency orders can be found here. 

After Nov. 23, the Utah Health Guidance levels will resume with the mask mandate continuing. Salt Lake City and Salt Lake County are currently in a High Level of Transmission on the Utah Health Guidance Levels.
