Cedar City Covid-19 Letter

Mayor Wilson-Edwards

Posted on  3/12/2020

Dear Cedar City Residents,

Yesterday, I was part of a local intergovernmental task force related to coronavirus preparedness in our area and I wanted to provide you with an update.

Here in Cedar City, our primary role during the coronavirus outbreak is to support the local, county, state and federal agencies directly tasked with managing and communicating to the public regarding the Coronavirus outbreak.

As our City continues to work with various different agencies I want you to know we will provide you with updated, accurate information as it becomes available. This is not a time to panic and let fear take over but to continue using good hygienic practices of washing our hands, using hand sanitizer, not touching our faces, sneezing and coughing into tissues and staying home if we don’t feel good. 

For the most update information from the Southwest Utah Public Health Department please visit or

Mayor Wilson-Edwards
