    COVID-19

    Like most of you, the Western Rural Development Center staff is adjusting to life amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. We are hosted by Utah State University and following their workplace and meeting guidelines, which at this time, include working remotely where possible and banning all non-essential travel.
    At this time, we are working with our partners to conduct research and provide science-based information for rural communities in relation to COVID-19 issues affecting our rural areas.
    We hope you and your families stay healthy and appreciate your efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19.
