Park City Travel Updates

Last updated June 26, 2020

While Park City and Summit Country are still in the "low risk" phase, the Summit County Health Department issued a new health ordinance mandating the use of face coverings/masks in a variety of public locations

Below we have outlined some of the guidelines for the low-risk phase outlined by the State of Utah. You can find additional details on the States Low-Risk Phase website

What are Park City businesses doing to keep visitors and staff safe?

  • Inside of, or in line to enter, any indoor space, which is open to members of the public.
  • Obtaining services from the healthcare industry in settings, including without limitation, a hospital, pharmacy, medical clinic, laboratory, physician or dental office, veterinary clinic, or blood bank, unless directed otherwise by a healthcare provider.
