  • Rep. McAdams reported that the Utah Department of Workforce Services has reported that 70% of those receiving unemployment benefits are job attached.
  • Rep. McAdams stressed that gaining the public’s confidence will be the key to a successful re-opening. The first baby step begins on May 1. He also stressed it is up to every business and individual to take responsibility to do their part. Practice good hygiene, wear a mask in public, sanitize often.
  • The Government is looking at several options to reduce the deficit moving forward, so far nothing has been decided concretely.
  • The SBA application portal is currently closed as they work through loans already in the queue, it is thought to be reopened soon, TBA.
