Guidelines For Responsible Recreation
The Utah Office of Tourism follows the recommendations of the color-coded phased health guidelines released by the state's Economic Response Task Force. Each phase outlines health and safety recommendations for Utahns that visitors to Utah can evaluate to make personal decisions about travel to Utah. Throughout, the guidelines recommend social distancing, enhanced hygiene protocols and the wearing of masks (indoors and where social distancing is difficult). As Utah's Department of Health monitors COVID-19 cases and transmission through the state, phased guidelines may change locally, so visitors are encouraged to check regularly.
- Stay home if you're sick.
- If you are traveling to Utah from another U.S. state, Utah currently has no travel restrictions or quarantine requirements if you are healthy and you haven't been in a high-risk situation.
- Visitors to Utah can protect themselves and Utahns by following state and local public health guidelines, which includes social distancing, enhanced hygiene protocols and the wearing of masks indoors and where social distancing is difficult, including on trails, at parks and other outdoors spaces.
- If you’re recreating outdoors, follow CDC guidance to prevent the spread of infectious diseases.
- Avoid crowded locations.
- Plan ahead as services and facilities may be limited (including bringing your own toilet paper and hand sanitizer).
- Practice Leave No Trace and responsible travel ethics.

Do your part
Before traveling, we ask you to consider:
- Will I come into contact with surfaces that can hold and transfer the virus?
- Does this activity put me at risk for potential rescue, straining local resources?
- Might I come within six feet of people who are not a part of my household?
- Does my recreation bring me in closer contact with vulnerable people or communities that have limited health resources?
