Summit County, Utah (5/1/20) — As Summit County enters the Moderate Risk (orange) level of the COVID-19 response, businesses are required to adopt the Social Distancing Protocol, the Mandatory Business Practices, and each industry’s Business Specific Protocols outlined in Joint Public Health Order 2020-05.

All businesses intending to operate at this time are required to register with the Health Department. Once a business receives notification that the Health Department has approved their registration, you may begin to operate. As part of this notification, businesses will receive a certification from the Health Department and will be required to display that certification where it is easily visible to the public and health inspectors.

Salons, food establishments, bars, and nightclubs will receive an inspection to ensure that they have implemented the Social Distancing Protocol, Mandatory Business Practices, and Industry Specific Protocol properly. Child care facilities, accommodations and lodging, gyms, resorts, retail trades, and waste management operations may receive an inspection resulting from complaints of non-compliance. Businesses may operate prior to this inspection.

 How to register:

Before beginning to operate, businesses should visit https://app.civicreview.com/application/5ea88cb9f93e2d00102aa1bd.

Registration is free and only requires a business name, email, and address as well as a digital signature. After registration is approved by the Health Department, businesses will receive an email containing the certificate that must be displayed for the public prior to operating.  Please allow 30-minutes for approvals during normal business hours Monday-Friday. If submitted after business hours, please allow 3-4 hours for approval.

All Third-Party Delivery Operations will also only need to submit a protocol at https://app.civicreview.com/application/5e9dab6bb029f30010d24442.

Please contact the Summit County Environmental Health Department with any questions regarding registration and inspection.  435-333-1502, or email summitenviro@summitcounty.org.

What does this mean for the public?

Patrons of Summit County businesses will know if a business has completed this certification process by the orange “Stabilization Supporter” flyer that each business is required to prominently display upon completion. This flyer represents an agreement between the business and the Summit County Health Department that the business will operate under the Social Distancing Protocol, the Mandatory Business Practices, and each industry’s Business Specific Protocols outlined in Joint Public Health Order 2020-05.

Establishments requiring an inspection will have an “Approved” stamp over the “Pending” Text in the bottom left-hand corner of the sign once a compliance inspection has been completed. Businesses may operate before receiving an inspection while their status still in the “Pending”. For businesses that do not require an inspection, the “Pending” box will remain unstamped.

Businesses, employees and members of the general public who have questions or concerns about compliance with the new Order are encouraged to call the Summit County Community Concerns Line at 435-333-0050. In addition to regular business hours (Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.), this line will be staffed from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 2, and Sunday, May 3.
