A message from ALA Utah Girls State regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
ALA Utah Girls State is closely monitoring developments concerning COVID-19 (Coronavirus) across Utah.
Currently, updates on COVID-19 are frequently changing as medical professionals are updating the Centers
for Disease Control and state/federal governments are imposing restrictions. Isolated cases in Utah have
been reported, but they are not widespread. We are monitoring the situation daily and are working closely
with our host institution, Weber State University in Ogden, to stay informed should the situation change.
Currently, neither WSU, state or local health officials are recommending that we alter our schedule for
ALA Utah Girls State in June. Thus, we are moving forwarding with planning for our June 1-6, 2020 session.
We will continue to monitor developments related to COVID-19 with the well-being and safety of ALA Utah
Girls State participants and our volunteer staff as top priority. For a precaution, we will be adding
additional medical staff with increased resources and policies. All participants will have access to hand
sanitizer, anti-bacterial soap, and disinfecting wipes as a precaution.
ALA Utah Girls State session updates will be sent via email and posted on our social media platforms.

The American Legion Auxiliary Utah Girls State is a week-long program
where girls learn more about the inner workings of our government at the
city, county, state and national levels. Girls will create and run a
state of their own and also gain a deeper understanding of our nation,
flag, and those men and women who have served this great country …
Girls State is more than leadership, music and arts, mock trials and elections.
It's creating lifelong friendships and gaining a valuable education that will
last you your lifetime.
