What to Expect When you Visit

Last updated December 8, 2020

Many of the things you love about Park City are the same, the mountains, views, and abundant activities. As Park City continues to reopen, you may be wondering if it is safe to visit. We are here to welcome you and ensure your visit can be fun, fulfilling, and safe.

The state of Utah issued a Public Health Order that changed COVID-19 restrictions by county. The Utah Department of Health will use a Transmission Index to designate counties as low, moderate, or high levels. On October 22, 2020, Summit County was designated as a High Transmission Level county.

To help you navigate a trip to beautiful Park City, we have outlined the basic guidelines, based on state and county restrictions, so you can make the most of your time here.
