HERRIMAN CITY, Utah (ABC4 News)- There are no confirmed cases of coronavirus in Herriman City, but city leaders are taking preventative measures.
On Thursday Governor Herbert issued recommendations statewide for the next two weeks:
- Mass gatherings should be limited to 100 people. That includes church gatherings, concerts and sporting events. But, not schools or places of work.
- Those over 60 or with a compromised immune system should limit gatherings to 20 people.
- If you are sick, stay home.

Earlier this week, Salt Lake County Mayor Jenny Wilson issued an executive order declaring a state of emergency.
The executive order is part of Utah’s preparedness plan and came at the unanimous recommendation of the Utah COVID-19 Task Force.
