Utah’s mask mandate will lift April 10

Utah’s mask mandate will lift April 10 under bill that governor is expected to sign
Gov. Spencer Cox said Saturday on Fox News that he expects every adult in state will be eligible for vaccine by beginning of next month.
Utah’s statewide mask mandate will end April 10 under a law passed in the final hours of the legislative session Friday.
Gov. Spencer Cox, who is not expected to veto the bill, talked about this move in an appearance Saturday on Fox News.
“We anticipate that by April 1st every adult in the state of Utah will be eligible for the vaccine,” Cox said, adding that he also expects Utah will “have abut 1.5 million vaccines in the state by April 10, when that mandate goes away.”
The governor said he doesn’t know whether that April date is “too early or too late,” but he pointed to the recent expansion of vaccine eligibility in the state.
Starting Monday, Utahns age 50 and older can start making appointments to get their COVID-19 vaccinations. Residents over age 18 with certain health conditions can also seek a vaccination. Those new qualifying conditions are diabetes (Type 1 or Type 2), chronic kidney disease, or obesity — people with a body mass index, or BMI, of 30 or higher. The previous BMI threshold was 40 or higher.
