The City of Moab wants to assure residents that all essential services will continue without interruption while city buildings are closed. “We are prepared and we will provide our residents with all necessary essential services — public safety, water, sewer, garbage collection and additional infrastructure,” said City of Moab spokesperson Lisa Church in an email.

She said the city wants all Moab residents to know the water system continues to be safe and secure. “Your tap water is completely safe to drink,” she said.

“We stand behind our partners at the health department. Following the orders issued by the Health Department will ensure that our food supply chain is safe and secure. We stand behind our partners at the county. Thank you for all your hard work on the COVID-19 Task Force. We stand behind our partners at Moab Regional Hospital. As a 17-bed critical access hospital we hear you loud and clear — you need all of us to be proactive during this pandemic,” Moab Mayor Emily Niehaus said.

“To our businesses and our community, the City of Moab is not imposing any additional restrictions on businesses at this time,” she continued. “We are following the regulations established by the Southeast Utah Health Department,” she added. “We are all in this together and together we will find our way forward.”
