Outdoor Events Resume as University Place Adapts COVID-19

August 4, 2020

OREM, Utah (August 04, 2020) – Outdoor events have resumed at The Orchard at University Place, a 120-acre mixed-use development project, with special consideration to participants safety and those working at the shopping center.

Events have been adjusted to be entertainment based – including concerts, magicians, etc., – and are on a stage so spectators can watch safely while maintaining social distance. Guests are asked to bring their own chairs or blankets to sit on, wear masks and stay six feet apart between household groups.

All of the shops and restaurants at University Place are open, following safety protocols recommended by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

“We want guests and employees to feel as safe and comfortable as possible while visiting University Place,” said Rob Kallas, general manager of University Place. “We have increased cleaning in the common areas so furniture and high touch points are wiped down frequently and on a regular basis, hand sanitizing stations and signs with the CDC guidelines reminding folks to wear a mask and social distance are placed throughout the property. Also, tables and chairs in our food seating areas and within The Orchard have been spaced out, and at every event we have a booth where we distribute masks and hand sanitizer.”
