Salem Days 2020

Salem Citizens,

For months we have been planning on holding Salem Days as we have in the past.   We kept pushing the date back to make a decision in hopes that the pandemic numbers would decrease, but that is not what has happened. The number of Covid-19 cases have spiked in Utah, including Salem.   As the Salem City Council, Covid-19 Committee, and myself as Mayor, we feel it is unsafe and unwise to hold the celebration and after voting, sadly it was determined to cancel ALL of Salem Days events.

We ask all people to follow these guidelines:

1)      Limit direct contact (especially with elderly)
2)      Keep spacing of 6 feet in public
3)      Wear a mask in public, when spacing is not possible
4)      Wash your hands frequently
5)      Safely check on neighbors

We have made alteration in city business. There will be restricted access to City Office to keep citizens and employees safe, but please call the office if needed.

Wishing you all to stay safe and healthy


Mayor Kurt L Christensen

As a reminder, there is no outdoor watering allowed between the hours of 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, and we will also be implementing the watering schedule of odd/even.   If your home address is an odd number you can water on odds days of the month, if your address is an even number, you can water on even days of the month.   This is to help to maintain the pressure in the system.
