March 31, 2020: STAY HOME!

While we would normally welcome visitors to enjoy the beauty of Emery County, we really don’t want visitors during the COVID-19 pandemic. We ask that all follow Utah Governor Gary Herbert’s “STAY SAFE, STAY HOME” Directive. As of today, there are 5 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Emery County, and all have recovered, we want it to stay that way. While residents of Emery County are welcome to enjoy the great outdoors within Emery County, if you don’t live here, please don’t come here. Our number one concern is for the safety and well-being of our citizens and you. A Public Health Order went into effect on March 17, 2020, which includes Emery County. The Order prohibits camping on public or private lands, except for Essential Visitors (work-related) and Primary Residents. Our Dispatch Center has had numerous calls from people who do not live here wanting to come for a day trip or for overnight camping. Again, we ask that you do not go against the Governor’s Directive, including non-essential travel. Again, please follow Governor Herbert’s Directive “STAY SAFE, STAY HOME” until the pandemic ends. Once it is over, we would love to have you visit Emery County

Dayton Hamvention Bulletin!!! This Just In!!

The Hamvention Executive Committee has been monitoring the COVID19 pandemic. We have worked very closely with our local and state health Departments.

It is with a very heavy heart the Hamvention Executive Committee has decided to cancel Hamvention for this year.

This decision is extremely difficult for us but with around two months until the Great Gathering we felt this action necessary.

More specific details regarding the closure will soon be posted on our website

Thank you for your understanding in this time of International Crisis.
