Summit County Council voted Thursday to join the rest of the state and go to the yellow risk level for COVID-19.

The decision takes effect Friday, just three weeks after the county lifted the Stay At Home Order put into place in March, which also ordered businesses, except essential ones, to close. 

When Summit County lifted that order on May first, people were allowed to move about the county and most businesses were allowed to reopen if they followed strict protocols to ensure the safety of employees and customers.

Summit County Council talked trash at their meeting Wednesday.

The county’s waste collection contract is up for bid.  Currently the county collects trash for 19,000 customers. And the costs appear to be going up, according to county council chair, Doug Clyde. But there could be some cost savings, according to Clyde, especially if the county stopped collecting the trash for multi-family units, which are four-plexes or larger.

When the rest of Utah eases into a yellow, or “low risk” level for COVID-19, Summit and Wasatch Counties remain at an orange, or “moderate risk” level. Health officials say that’s because of the high rate of the disease per capita in those counties.

But Summit County did make some changes. Thursday night, Summit County Council passed a new health order which clarified what the orange level means. It goes into effect Saturday and will last at least one week.
