Situational awareness – July 30, 2020

Good morning from Salt Lake City

Let’s Thursday!


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

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

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

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

  • More than 150,000 Americans have died from coronavirus since February. That’s more than the 9/11 attacks 50 times over.
  • A White House report says Utah is still in the coronavirus “red zone” and should implement a statewide mask mandate.
  • President Donald Trump says he did not bring up reported Russian bounties for killing American troops during his recent phone call with Vladimir Putin.
