LOGAN – Ute Lake State Park will remain closed until at least Aug. 25 following positive COVID-19 tests among park employees.

Parks officials said some employees reported a high temperature during routine screening for the virus on Tuesday. Those employees were immediately sent home and the park was closed “out of an abundance of caution for the public’s safety,” according to a parks news release.

A release on Saturday announced the facilities are undergoing a thorough cleaning and said staff had tested positive and continue to quarantine.

Parks officials have not announced the number of positive coronavirus tests among Ute Lake staff.
