Utah (ABC4 News) – During Friday’s daily COVID-19 update from Governor Gary Herbert, Jess Anderson, Commissioner of Public Safety, introduced details about setting up quarantine and isolation sites statewide as cases continue to increase in Utah. 

Anderson said that the state of Utah is working with county officials to open isolation facilities for individuals who contract COVID-19 and might not have proper isolation locations at which to stay. These locations will also be available to Utah’s homeless population or to those without a place to go, Anderson said. 

These areas are available to household members if proper isolation space is unavailable in their home. Officials will not release the location of these isolation facilities at this time. 

Anderson said the state of Utah has the capacity to house these individuals as it is made known to them.
