  • On Good Things Utah today – Utahns are split over whether the statewide mask mandate put in place to slow the spread of COVID-19 should end on Saturday, and only a few believe the Utah Legislature’s decision should be up to just elected officials, according to a new Deseret News/Hinckley Institute of Politics poll. Results showed 44% of Utahns believe the mask mandate should continue beyond the April 10 date set in a new law passed before the 2021 Legislature ended last month, while 20% said the date was reasonable, 14% said it should have been sooner, and 17% said there should have never been a mandate.
  • Plus, an important CORRECTION to previously posted information about traveling with sunscreen: For a brief period of time, the TSA website incorrectly reported that sunscreen containers larger than 3.4 oz. / 100 ml were allowed in carry-on bags, if medically necessary. The error on the website has been corrected. Travelers still need to ensure liquids, gels and aerosols in carry-on bags do not exceed quantities larger than 3.4 ounces. TSA advises passengers who need larger quantities of sunscreen, or other liquids, gels and aerosols, to add them to checked baggage for use at their destination. Note that since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, TSA has been allowing one liquid hand sanitizer container up to 12 ounces per passenger in carry-on bags. This is in effect until further notice.
