City of Moab Update
January 10, 2022

Due to the increase in COVID-19 cases and the spread of the Omicron variant in Grand County some staff are currently working remotely or in the office in a limited capacity, 

The Treasurer's office remains open during regular business hours for questions, licensing and bill payments. 

Please make an appointment if you need to conduct City business with the Planning, Engineering, or Recorder offices. (See contact information below)

City of Moab facilities remain open to the public. City Council meetings will be held electronically via Zoom until further notice. To view City Council and other board agendas visit the Agenda Center. The agendas also include a link to submit Citizen To Be Heard comments. Council and board meetings can be viewed on the City’s YouTube channel.

Mask Policy - Masks Required in City Facilities
Masks are still required in all City of Moab facilities for staff and members of the public. Social distancing – maintaining at least 6 feet between individuals wherever possible – is also required. 

 This decision has been made out of an abundance of caution and based on CDC guidelines as well as recommendations from local medical experts. The State Health Department continues to list Grand County in the High Transmission Level for COVID-19 infection rates.

 COVID-19 infection rates are once again climbing across the country, largely due to the spread of the Omicron and Delta variants. These variants are far more contagious than the original COVID-19 virus and hospitalizations are increasing, even in our community, especially for unvaccinated individuals. In some cases, vaccinated people are also contracting the virus – although the health effects are generally far less severe. 

 Masks and social distancing are proven to help slow the spread of all variants of the virus to keep staff and our community safe, please follow these new mask guidelines as long as they remain in effect.

Exceptions to the mask requirement include:

  • Individuals with specific medical conditions;
  • When communicating as or with an individual who is deaf or hard of hearing if the speaker wears a face shield or uses alternative protection such as a plexiglass barrier;
  • When needed to confirm an identity
  • While outdoors and maintaining a physical distance of at least six feet from any individual from a different household; and
  • Children younger than three years old.
