Utah travel restrictions are not just limited to Utah residents.
Utah has also been designated the “State of Exception” for some travel restrictions.
Utah travel restrictions apply to visitors to other states that are part of the Traveling Ban Exemption Program, a list of more than 20 states and the District of Columbia that are exempted from Utah’s travel restrictions because they are not part of Utah.
In addition, Utah residents who are in the United States on business, student, tourist or other non-business-related travel, or who are visiting another state during a tourist season, are exempt from Utah travel regulations.
