Herriman City Coronavirus Information

COVID-19 Vaccine

Utah Governor Spencer Cox announced any individual in Utah who is 12 years or older is eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine. 

You can search for doses by your favorite provider or by vaccine type. Each health department and provider receives different amounts of vaccines. 

Provider Search Vaccine Search

A few important things to note:
  • If you've already had one dose of a two-dose vaccine, please get the second dose at the same place where you got your first dose. The provider who gave you your first dose reserved a second dose for you. If you don't return to the same place, they will end up with unused doses or not enough second doses for people when they need it at some locations. 
  • Vaccines are free and you don't have to have health insurance to get vaccinated. 
  • You don't have to be a U.S. citizen or resident to get the vaccine. 
  • The state of Utah's mask mandate terminated effective April 10. Private businesses can also still require masks.

Salt Lake County is currently in a high level of transmission as of August 9, 2021.

On December 3, 2020, the State of Utah COVID-19 Response Team updated quarantine protocols to align with the CDC’s recommendations.

The key points are as follows:

  • Quarantine after COVID-19 exposure is now 10 days instead of 14 days
  • You can be tested on day 7 of your quarantine and if you test negative, and do not have any symptoms of COVID-19, you can end quarantine before the 10 days
  • If you live with someone who tested positive for COVID-19, you need to quarantine for 10 days
  • If you were exposed or had close contact with someone who has COVID-19, you should wait 7 days before being tested

As Herriman works to support a high quality of life for residents and recover from impacts caused by the pandemic, Temporary Sign permits in commercial zones will again be available through the Herriman City Planning Department beginning June 1, 2021. In response to the pandemic, Herriman had previously suspended regulations for temporary sign permits to allow businesses to communicate that they were open during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Herriman defines a temporary sign as “any sign constructed of paper, cloth, canvas, light fabric, cardboard, wallboard, or other light materials, with or without frames.” While “balloon signs” are not included in this definition, they may be allowed with the approval of a Conditional Use Permit.

As per City Code, temporary signs are allowed in most commercial zones on private property. Temporary signs may be displayed a maximum of 21 days at any one time, with a minimum 30-day separation between displays, and not more than four times during a calendar year. The intent of these regulations is to support local businesses while maintaining community character and preserving public safety.

Approval of a temporary sign permit will be required to display temporary signs as defined by City Code. A temporary sign permit application fee is $25.00.

To apply for a temporary sign permit, or for more information, please contact the Herriman City Planning Department at planning@herriman.org or (801) 446-5323.
