Summit County Moves to “High” Level on Covid-19 Transmission Index
SUMMIT COUNTY, Utah. — According to the State of Utah’s Covid-19 Transmission Index Summit County has moved to a “High” level of transmission for the virus. This means social gatherings are limited to 10 people or less, bars and restaurants must maintain social distancing of at least 6 feet between parties, and the countywide mask mandate originally implemented in June remains in place.
This may leave you wondering when the county will determine they can go back to the “Moderate” or “Low” levels of transmission. Well, the levels on the Transmission Index correlate with ICU capacity, case rates and positivity rates. So until the county witnesses a decrease in some or all of those factors, they will remain at the “high” transmission level. According to the Summit County Health Department, “Changes from a higher transmission level to a lower transmission level may occur every 14 days at minimum, when thresholds are met.”
