This is Derek Miller Speaking on Business.  As Utah moves into the stabilization phase of the coronavirus, the economy is beginning to reactivate.  One significant milestone is the reopening of City Creek Center, and we have General Manager Linda Wardell here to give us the details.


I will never forget the joy of reopening City Creek.  It’s symbolic of our resolve to beat the coronavirus and represents what we can do when we work together.  We are operating on a reduced daily schedule – Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.  We are committed to putting health and safety first, working with health officials and following all local, state and federal requirements.

We are cleaning and disinfecting the center throughout the day, focusing on high-touch and high-traffic surfaces.  We encourage the use of masks for customers and employees, and we have placed signs and decals to assist with social distancing.  There will be other safeguards, like removing trays from our food courts to reduce high-touch surfaces, turning off drinking fountains, and closing the children’s play area.  For now, this is necessary, but well worth it, as we are delighted to be open and to welcome our friends back to City Creek Center.


With City Creek Center now open, we’re reminded of Utah’s resilience.  We have led together to get through the urgent phase of this pandemic, and now we can work together to reactivate our economy.

I’m Derek Miller, with the Salt Lake Chamber, and this is “Speaking on Business.”
