Behind the Headlines

Primary elections, the Utah County businesses involved in a COVID-19 outbreak, and the return of sports


This week in Utah news:

Spencer Cox’s lead over Jon Huntsman grows in the race for Utah governor, as ballots are slowly counted amid precautions of the coronavirus pandemic. We’ll give a full recap of Tuesday’s primary election.

New documents released by Utah County this week after a public records fight identify the two businesses that created COVID-19 hot spots in the area as an American Fork nutrition company a Spanish Fork construction firm.

And the plan to restart professional sports during a pandemic. When are teams returning to play? What are the leagues doing to keep athletes safe? And how effective will those measures be at stopping the virus?
