PARK CITY, Utah. — It’s back to business as ‘normal’ as it can be during these times. Gov. Gary Herbert shared Thursday during a press conference that the restriction on alcohol sales past 10 p.m. will be lifted, effective Dec. 18.
“We want to make sure our business community has every opportunity to not only survive, but to thrive,” Gov. Herbert said. “With Covid-19, the businesses that have been hit the hardest are those in the hospitality industry.”
Utah bars and restaurants pledged to take increased safety measures to keep patrons and employees safe. According to Herbert, masks are required to be worn when patrons are not actively eating or drinking in a restaurant or bar, and patrons must also be stationary when eating or drinking. Businesses are also continuing to limit capacity and enforce social distancing at their establishments.
