Economic Response Task Force releases blueprint for reopening business in ‘Utah Leads Together 2.0’

April 17, 2020 (Salt Lake City, Utah) – As the COVID-19 curve begins to flatten, Utah’s Economic Task Force released a plan for reactivating the economy through a process that is described not as a “switch” but a “dial,” and calls for vigilance, confidence, patience, innovation, and engagement. 

The plan proposes a series of protocols for a color-coded health guidance program, including a seal of approval for businesses trained to comply with health protocols, addressing issues of business liability, continuing engagement with federal relief programs, the management of personal protective equipment, and special provisions for education.
