In-person events return at The Gateway, boosting economy
SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4 ) – On Friday, nationwide, people are beginning to slowly return to some normalcy.
Thursday, the CDC eased some COVID-19 restrictions for those who are fully vaccinated. Now, in many situations, people do not have to wear a mask outdoors or indoors. Masks are still called for while inside buses, planes, and homeless shelters.
Governor Spencer Cox has already ended the state’s public health orders.
In Salt Lake, The Gateway is getting back into the swing of things.
“It is awesome. We are finally starting to see some people walking around, businesses are coming back,” The Store manager Austen Wilde says.
After about a year of scaled-back and canceled events, some events like the Urban Outdoor Flea Market and Movies on the Plaza will return, potentially boosting the local economy.
