Salt Lake County's Vulnerable Populations
Salt Lake County is concerned about our most vulnerable populations during a crisis like this. Those include the homeless, our immigrant communities, those who are isolated and our aging citizens.
Salt Lake County is working diligently in partnership with Salt Lake City, the State of Utah, service providers, the Salt Lake Valley Coalition to End Homelessness, and other partners to protect vulnerable populations from COVID-19 with a specific focus on individuals experiencing homelessness. Additionally, Salt Lake County Aging and Adult Services continue operations under altered procedures as health and safety precautions.
Salt Lake County has adapted to the current crisis to continue delivering services to our aging community. Click here to see all the resources available.
