Salt Lake Chamber: Speaking On Business: Utah Department Of Health
This is Derek Miller talking about the business. The Utah Department of Heath works with numerous community partners to create healthy environments in which to live, work, and play. Tom Hudachko from the Utah Department of Health is here to tell us more about how you can protect yourself and those around you.
Your health is everything. When your physical, emotional, and mental wellbeing is taken care of, it will help you live your best life. That’s why we do what we do in the Utah Department of Health and other public health agencies across the state – we know that a healthy society means a prosperous society.
Getting vaccinated against diseases like COVID-19 is the best way to protect yourself and those around you. In addition, vaccination will help ensure our economic recovery from the pandemic.
When our children return to school it is important to do everything possible to protect them. So if your child is 12 years or older, get them vaccinated. Students, teachers and staff should also wear masks in school as additional protection.
As always, wash your hands frequently, keep your distance from others, and stay home when you are sick. These safe health practices will protect us all – individually, as a family, and as a community.
We are grateful for the hard work the Utah Department of Health works to ensure the health and safety of Utah residents. For more information, see health.utah.gov. I’m Derek Miller from the Salt Lake Chamber and I talk about business.
