A message from Mayor Jenny Wilson
March 31, 2020
I recognize and appreciate that immigrants are represented in many of the vital businesses and critical occupations in Salt Lake County – even on the frontlines of the battle against COVID-19 — from health care to daycare and elder care; from food service to delivery services.
As the Mayor of a welcoming community, I want to assure you, our immigrant residents, that your health and safety matter. I will do whatever I can to reduce unnecessary fear. There are no checkpoints and there is no cause for anyone to carry a specific letter to verify their place of employment.
I encourage all residents to follow health orders issued by state and local leaders. The County’s Office for New Americans is here to support the unique needs of our New American communities.
