Utah moved to the Yellow Phase (low risk) on May 16. The move from Orange Phase (moderate risk) to Yellow Phase was made after the state determined “Utah’s efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19 have been working,” stated the Utah Department of Health's website.

“Finding a new normal won’t be instant, like flipping a switch, it’ll be more like gradually moving a dial,” it added.
