[ARCHIVED] Statement on COVID-19 Case Spikes

statement 122721 (1)

Summit County, Utah (December 27, 2021) — Over the Christmas holiday, Summit County’s COVID-19 cases reached record highs on three different days. The Summit County Health Department encourages residents to take basic precautions to avoid contracting and spreading COVID-19, especially during the week leading to the New Year holiday. Residents and visitors are strongly advised to protect themselves and others during this spike by staying at home when sick, frequently washing hands and using hand sanitizer when in public and seeking testing when symptoms consistent with COVID-19 appear. Additionally, wearing masks while in crowded indoor settings is strongly encouraged.

The Health Department remains optimistic that while cases are on the rise, Summit County’s vaccine rates will continue to keep hospitalizations low and greatly reduce the risk of death among those who contract COVID-19.
