SALT LAKE CITY — Gov. Gary Herbert has issued three executive orders to assist the Utah government in functioning properly while attempting to lessen the spread of the novel coronavirus.

The three orders include:
● Facilitate returns of product to the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control by licensees impacted by recent health orders

● Allow the public to view Board of Pardons and Parole hearings remotely

● Facilitate the ability of public bodies to conduct meetings electronically

“Even though we have implemented many changes in recent days to introduce more social distancing in Utah and slow the spread of novel coronavirus, state government is still open for business and dedicated to serving Utah citizens.”
