Governor Gary Herbert is moving to reopen more of Utah by reducing the state's coronavirus alert. 

During a briefing on the pandemic yesterday, the governor said that the move to reopen some state businesses would only last if Utahns continued to practice vigilance against the spread of COVID-19. 

He stressed that social distancing and wearing face masks would be required in public until the alert level is reduced even further.

The governor says Utah isn't completely ready to drop restrictions meant to help stop the spread of the coronavirus.
