Our Goal is to keep your business open during the pandemic
- The goal of Utah Department of Health (UDOH) and TriCounty Health Department (TCHD) is to help you keep your employees healthy and your business open during the pandemic. WE want to help keep your worksite safe for employees and customers.
- COVID-19 Spreads very easily and quickly. Even if you and your employees are doing everything right, your business may see cases of COVID-19. We want to help you plan ahead and make sure you know what to do if that happens, without having to shut down your business.
If an employee tests positive for COVID-19, do I need to shut down my business?
- No. In most cases, you do not need to shut down your business. Employees who came into contact up to 2 days before the employee tested positive, or first got sick, should quarantine for 14 days. CLose contact means an employee was closer than 6 feet or 2 meters (About 2 arm lengths) for 15 minutes or longer to the person who tested positive. Tell these employees they may have been exposed to COVID-19 and should quarantine. You need to be very careful to protect the privacy and confidentialioty of the employee who tested positive.
Cleaning after a positive case of COVID-19
You should wait 24 hours before you clean and disinfect. This reduceds the chance for other employees to be exposed to respiratory droplets.
- If you can’t wait 24 hours, wait as long as possible. Open outside doors and windows to increase air circulation in these areas during this waiting period.We still have much to learn about COVID-19. From what we know right now about the virus and about similar coronaviruses, COVID-19 is most easily spread from close contact (within about 6 feet). The virus is spread by respiratory droplets. We don’t know yet if, or how easily, it spreads with infectious aerosols (droplets in the air that another person inhales).
It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or their eyes. This is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads. From what we know, COVID-19 can live on surfaces for hours to days. We are still learning many things about COVID-19 and how it spreads.

TriCounty Health Department prioritizes the health of the community. In any situation, with any virus, illness or disease, TriCounty Health Department puts the health of residents in Uintah, Daggett and Duchesne County first.
TriCounty Health Department would like everyone to remember through this time that staying healthy is a community effort. We can all prevent illness and viruses from spreading through our communities.
