COVID-19 Updates

Santaquin Community Services Department 


Update May 19, 2020

Santaquin City is staying up to date with Federal and State recommendations for how to safely re-open our communities. Recently, the Governor recommended transitioning from (orange) Moderate Risk to (yellow) Low Risk. This allows us to have social interactions with groups of 50 or less as we continue to follow social distancing guidelines.

Department staff have the unique balance of helping keep residents safe and being proactive helping re-open our community. We are thoughtful of our youth and the potential of depression during these hard times where school and traditional programs have been cancelled. We have recommended a balance:
