A Message From Gov. Gary Herbert

davidwicaiBlog, COVID19

Team Utah,

Thank you for your continued work and stewardship of our great state. I recognize that much has changed in the past two weeks that has disrupted our lives and our certainty of what lies ahead. In an effort to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus and protect Utahns, we have taken some dramatic precautions, and I recognize those precautions impact you as individuals, employees, parents, caregivers, and as residents of Utah.

And of course on top of all that, we experienced a 5.7 magnitude earthquake this past week that disrupted various operations and compounded the sense of concern that many feel.

I hope you’ll take a moment to watch some thoughts I shared last Wednesday night with all Utahns. We are living through challenging times, but we’ve faced and overcome challenges before and I know we will again. I want you to know how much I appreciate your work. I am honored to be surrounded by so many capable, devoted professionals whose combined efforts make Utah’s government the best in the country.

Thank you, and may God bless you.

Sincerely,

Governor Gary R. Herbert
