Be Ready Utah Expo COVID Precautions

The Be Ready Utah Expo planners, in partnership with the Mountain America Expo Center, want to provide a safe environment for all Expo participants. Several COVID-specific safety measures will be put into place at the Expo. Click to read the 2022 Be Ready Utah Expo COVID-19 Precautions.

With the observance of these health safety measures, we anticipate that we will be able to safely conduct the 2022 Be Ready Utah Expo as planned.
