March 7, 2020
We are aware of the concerns amid the coronavirus outbreak. The Summit County Health Department reports that NO CASES HAVE BEEN CONFIRMED IN SUMMIT COUNTY, to date. On March 6, 2020 Governor Herbert issued an executive order declaring a state of emergency in response to the evolving outbreak. Later that day the Utah Department of Health confirmed the first case of COVID-19 (coronavirus) in Utah (Davis County). We are working in partnership with the Summit County Health Department to actively monitor and stay informed of this ongoing situation.
Health and safety of our students and staff is our number one priority. We are utilizing commercial-grade disinfectant tools to proactively sanitize our facilities and busses. We are strongly encouraging the washing of hands, which is the number one way to stop the spread of germs.
Please watch for more communication on this matter in the coming days and weeks. We recommend that you get trusted information from the Summit County Health Department's website: https://summitcountyhealth.org/coronavirus
