  • Utah Democrats call on Gov. Herbert to issue a statewide stay at home order.
  • New poll shows a third of Utahns don’t believe coronavirus is a serious threat to them or their families.


I’d like your opinion on something…

I’ve heard dozens and dozens of pundits say the coronavirus will change American life for good, or we won’t be able to go back to the way things were before the virus.

Let me know how you think America will be changed forever because of this pandemic. Or, if you think we’ll be able to return to the way of life we knew before the virus hit America.

Send your thoughts to me at [email protected]. I’ll collect them in a future story.
