Are there any overnight accommodations (hotels, motels, condos, guest homes, RV parks, campgrounds) currently available for visitors in Moab?
No. The Southeast Utah Health Department, on March 17, 2020, issued a Public Health Order that orders overnight lodging establishments to only accept new reservations for rooms for "essential visitors". The order states in part: all overnight and short-term lodging facilities (including but not limited to hotels, motels, condos, townhomes, guest homes, RV parks, and all camping on public or private lands) may only check-in, rent, or lease to Essential Visitors and Primary Residents. An Essential Visitor is any individual renting lodging or camping for an amount of time less than 30 days for the purposes of work within the county. Primary Residents are any individuals renting lodging for periods of 30 days or greater or whose primary address is within one of the counties."
How long is the Public Health Order in effect?
The Order expires in 30 days (from March 17, 2020) unless renewed or terminated early. The Southeast Utah Health Department Health Officer will re-evaluate the Order in 14 calendar days.
