Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates
State Updates - Utah Leads Together
Utah Leads Together is Governor Herbert’s comprehensive task force plan to mitigate the economic consequences of COVID-19. The plan outlines the path to recovery and identifies tools to gauge success in reopening Utah’s economy. The report and economic playbook include recommendations from dozens of Utah state and industry leaders.
The plan conveys three phases of response: urgent, stabilization, and recovery. These phases help businesses correctly balance the health of employees with planning imperatives necessary for continuing operations.

Impacts to AF City Services
Rather than coming into City facilities, residents can accomplish most City needs online or over the phone by visiting afcity.org or calling 801-763-3000. This includes paying your City bills, signing up for utilities, and even requesting a dump pass! If you do have to come in for anything, please minimize contact with surfaces and keep safe distances from people and staff.
Additionally, in an effort to follow the recommended guidelines from state and federal officials, and practice what has been called an “overabundance of caution”, American Fork City would like to institute the following changes to specific city services beginning Friday, March 13. These changes will remain in effect until further notice. However, the city will evaluate if additional changes to services are necessary.
In an effort to keep our citizens safe and as recommended by the Utah State Health Department, all AF facility lobbies are temporarily closed to the public. However, we’re still open for business! Please use the following methods to contact us:
|Parks||American Fork City will be accepting pavilion reservations starting May 29. Playgrounds are also open. You are required to maintain all current state guidelines, including social distancing and total attendance limits. |
American Fork Fitness Center will open May 26 in a limited use basis. For more information please visit afcity.org/fitness
Available recreation programs will start up again on May 26. For more information please visit afcity.org/recreation
Until further notice, all activities and reservations at the senior center will be canceled. However, the senior center will still be offering meals for qualified seniors Monday through Friday, 11:00 am to 12:00 pm. Seniors who use the Meals On Wheels program will still have meals delivered to their homes as usual. Qualified seniors who come to the center for meals can pick them up through a drive-through service at the back of the center. Meals must be scheduled a day in advance. For more information visit afcity.org/seniors or call 801-763-3090 during office hours.
American Fork Library will open for walk-ins starting May 26 on a limited basis. For information on these services call 801-763-3070 or visit afcity.org/library
All scheduled tours of the police and fire stations are canceled. If you suspect you have COVID-19, or have questions regarding the virus, we ask that you not go directly to the police or fire stations. Rather, we ask that you utilize existing resources such as the coronavirus hotline (800-456-7707) or website (coronavirus.utah.gov). If you’re feeling ill and it’s not an emergency, we ask that you contact your physician or use telehealth to assess the next steps. While our police and fire services are trained to handle COVID-19 emergencies, they are still required to operate as usual and have limited capacity to take every person’s questions regarding the virus.
Pursuant to COVID-19 Federal guidelines, future public meetings will be conducted electronically. They can be viewed live at the City’s YouTube page. Citizen’s may submit comments via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. All comments must be submitted three hours prior to the start of the scheduled meeting, or earlier..
We want to stress all these steps are precautionary. Our City will still be providing the essential services. Our water is still clean and safe to drink. You can still go out and enjoy the bright sun, warm weather and clean air. For now, any changes to services are temporary. American Fork City is being proactive to make sure our community remains safe. Please be kind, understanding, and prudent during this time of caution.
