Drivers entering Utah now required to complete COVID-19 info form
Starting today, all drivers—except commercial drivers—entering Utah are required to complete an electronic form regarding COVID-19. According to the state’s governor, Gary Herbert, this executive order is meant to prevent nonessential travel, especially during Easter Sunday. Non-commercial drivers using certain entry points will receive an automated text message (triggered by geofencing) through the federal Wireless Emergency Alerts system. This text message will provide a link to complete the required form.
Non-commercial motorists who leave the state at the same points indicated below will also receive a text because the system doesn’t distinguish between inbound and outbound traffic. These drivers leaving Utah can ignore the message. However, they will be asked to complete the form upon return.
Locations that will be alerted
- I-15 at the Arizona border
- US-89 north of Kanab
- US-491/191 at Monticello
- I-70 at the Colorado border
- US-40 at the Colorado border
- I-80 at the Wyoming border
- I-15 at the Idaho border I-84 at the Idaho border
- I-80 at the Nevada border
