The Utah Leads Together plan recognizes that markets correct, recessions end, and prosperity returns. We anticipate three phases with a specific strategy:
This is the phase we are in right now and is expected to last 8–12 weeks (with a focus on eight) beginning March 16, 2020. The objective is clear: Mitigate the spread of COVID-19 through strict social distancing measures. The strategy is to identify, mitigate, and reduce the virus’ impact before Utah reaches a hospital-bed crisis. A detailed work plan is in place. This phase involves a coordinated public health response, large-scale testing, and a historic economic stimulus. We adapt and we innovate. Adherence to this phase will shorten other phases and accelerate economic recovery.
This phase is expected to last 10–14 weeks (with a focus on 10) and is expected to be the longest phase. The objectives are to make sure there is no backtracking on the progress made during the urgent phase, provide promising medical treatments, and continue to lay the groundwork for a complete economic recovery. In this phase we innovate. A detailed work plan is under development. It is during this phase that private and public sector policies will aid with the economic recovery. Adherence to this phase will hasten economic recovery.
This phase is expected to last 8–10 weeks (with a focus on eight). The objectives are to provide promising medical treat-ments and continue the hard work of restoring economic confidence. In this phase we overcome. A detailed work plan is under development. Adherence to this phase will ensure Utah’s economic recovery comes more quickly and in a more sustained way.
