Utah trusts the experts.
We trust epidemiologists and medical providers working on the front lines to save lives. We trust the WHO and CDC to help us to flatten the curve by social distancing and staying home. We don’t scapegoat communities of color by using racist names for a virus. In times of global crisis like the COVID-19 pandemic, we expect our elected leaders to act responsibly to help us save lives.
While most Utah leaders are handling the coronavirus crisis wisely, some politicians are falling into the right-wing news trap. These politicians are ignoring expert advice and spreading harmful misinformation.
