Situational awareness – July 10, 2020

Good morning from Salt Lake City

Let’s Friday!


116 Days to the 2020 election (11/3/2020)

194 days to inauguration day (01/20/2021)

199 days to the start of the 2021 Utah Legislature (1/25/2021)

Here are the stories you need to pay attention to this morning:

  • Gov. Gary Herbert says Utah’s K-12 schools will require masks, but he did not make face coverings mandatory for the rest of the state.
  • Utah pulled the plug on the contact tracing part of the multi-million dollar Healthy Utah app.
  • The Supreme Court ruled President Trump cannot block the release of his financial records.


This week’s question comes from reader Doublas DeVore:

From statehood to 1940, Utah had seven governors. One particular fact distinguishes John C. Cutler and Charles R. Mabey from the others. What is it?
