Utah COVID-19 Community Task Force’s Recommendations

March 12, 2020 -- Ephraim, UT – After the announcement made today by the Governor’s Office, Snow College is responding with the following statement.
As our country and state grapple with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), state leaders are determined to do their part to protect the health and safety of our communities. These decisions are not made lightly. The World Health Organization has declared the coronavirus a worldwide pandemic. We are combining efforts as a system to slow the disease’s spread. As part of that initiative, Snow College will implement the following action plan:

  • Hold regular classes through March 20 while preparations continue
  • Move to online instruction for the rest of the semester, effective April 1
  • Cancel classes on March 30-31
  • Cancel or reschedule all college-sponsored large gatherings (indoor and outdoor) through April 30
  • Restrict international and domestic travel, as well as in-state travel to large gatherings (as previously announced)

Each day, new knowledge about this infectious disease is being developed by researchers and clinicians. Please check the college’s COVID-19 website at for the latest updates. We are adjusting our response daily based on the best recommendations of these scientists, after consultation with USHE institutions, and under the guidance of state and federal health officials.
