Dear Residents of Cottonwood Heights,
We highly encourage you to work with us via email or telephone. Our staff is available via email and telephone during business hours and our police department is on duty 24 hours a day. If you feel that you need to meet in person, we encourage precautionary measures such as keeping a safe distance of at least six feet from others.
We ask that each of our residents and visitors respect our efforts and follow the hygiene recommendations listed below to combat this and many other viral threats. It is of paramount importance that citizens be educated and proactive in measures that can slow the spread of COVID19 in our community. Key public prevention measures include:
We recommend and encourage residents to opt out of attending large mass gatherings. As a city we have made the determination to postpone mass gatherings and most public functions. We additionally encourage residents to practice social distancing to reduce the potential spreading of the virus.
It is critically important that residents use 911 for emergencies only. If you develop a cough, fever, or difficulty breathing and have traveled recently with a widespread outbreak of COVID-19, you should consult traveler’s guidance information from the Centers for Disease (CDC). This content is regularly monitored and updated. As always, you should consult your primary care provider or local clinic directly with questions regarding your own health.
If you have questions about COVID-19 the Utah Department of Health has established a hotline at 1-800-456-7707 and has information on their website coronavirus.utah.gov. Additionally, the experts at the Salt Lake County Health Department have asked that community members reference www.cdc.gov for information.
We can assure you that we will continue to respond to your emergencies and will conduct daily operations for our residents and businesses.

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses, some causing illness in people and others circulating among animals including camels, cats and bats. Based on other coronaviruses, people infected with COVID-19 should be considered to be contagious from the day of fever onset until 10 days after fever ends, or until appropriate laboratory testing shows the patient is no longer contagious. Coronaviruses typically have an incubation period of 2‒14 days after exposure. The specific incubation period for this coronavirus is unknown. More information can be found at https://coronavirus.utah.gov/.
