Covid-19 Updates


Washington County, Utah has been moved to the High Risk category by the Utah State Department of Health and will remain so for a minimum of two weeks. As a result, appropriately worn face masks are mandatory while you are at the Dixie Center.

Our number one goal is your safety. Please help us help everyone by following this simple requirement.


The Dixie Center is very aware of the updated safety guidelines concerning COVID-19. With the Governor’s announcement, you’ll need to adhere to the following when you’re attending any event:

  • Appropriately worn masks are required while you are in any common area (Lobby, Concourse, Restrooms, etc). You may remove your mask in your meeting if you are socially distanced. And yes, if you’re eating you may remove it. This mandate is set to be re-evaluated on October 29, but in the meantime, please respect others and properly wear that mask. (Thanks in advance – you’re awesome!)

The Dixie Center is committed to maintaining a clean and safe venue. We have already increased cleaning and offer readily-available hand sanitizer stations. Our clients and health department have confidence in the work we’re doing, and we plan to continue striving for the best for you.
