In an effort to provide attendees and events with up-to-date information and communication regarding COVID-19, updates will be posted on this page as they become available. The Dixie Center staff is dedicated to providing clear and direct information during this time of growing concern. We are in close communication with the Southwest Utah Public Health Department, St. George Police and Fire Department, and the Utah Department of Health.
We remain committed to providing our clients and guests with the safest means of operation.
The Dixie Center has instituted the following safety precautions:
- The promotion of everyday preventive actions with staff in accordance with the CDC. Click Here
- The promotion of cough, sneeze, and hand washing etiquette posters throughout the facility.
- Notices from the CDC have been distributed to staff in an ongoing effort to educate and inform in preparation for potential health risks.
- While we have not received specific instructions to change our housekeeping practices, we have increased the frequency that we wipe down and clean surfaces throughout the facility(s).
- Efforts are currently underway to prepare each facility for future implementations of required operational changes.
Things our clients can do to assist our efforts in the provision of a safe space for their events:
- Encourage your attendees to stay home if they feel sick with a respiratory illness.
- Assist with the creation of signage to alert attendees of hand washing & cough/sneeze guidelines.
- Provide email links to CDC and Department of Health websites, as they all provide generous information surrounding COVID-19.
