On January 7, 2022, Dr. Angela Dunn issued a public health order requiring people in Salt Lake County, regardless of vaccination status or past COVID-19 infection, to wear well-fitting masks when indoors (or queueing outdoors) in public. The order, #2022-01, is in response to the record-breaking surge of the Omicron COVID-19 variant; it takes effect at 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, January 8, 2022, and is currently planned to be in force until 5 p.m. on Monday, February 7, 2022.   

Once the public health order is removed, Salt Lake City School District will continue to abide by Salt Lake City Mayor Erin Mendenhall’s mask mandate. Salt Lake City’s mask mandate is currently in effect until April 1, 2022. Parents of students with health conditions and those with disabilities may speak with their child’s school principal to request a mask exemption.
