COVID-19

Message from UAF Executive Director

We know this is a difficult and uneasy time. We want to assure you that Utah AIDS Foundation will always be there to support you. In order to ensure the safety of our clients, volunteers, and staff, our offices are currently closed and staff is working remotely. Additionally, some of our services are currently suspended or operating on an adjusted schedule. Please check under the “Services” tab for program specific updates and schedules.

At this time, factual information regarding COVID-19, and the impact of COVID-19 on people living with HIV is critical and being updated continually as we learn more about the virus. Currently, there is a lot of misinformation being circulated, particularly on social media and we ask that you rely on reputable sources for this critical information. Government agencies such as the CDC, WHO, and state and local health departments are great resources for accurate information. The links below will provide you with the most up to date information regarding Utah specific COVID-19 information. For information specific to the impact of COVID-19 on individuals living with HIV, please visit the “HIV & COVID-19” tab for additional resources.

As always, we want to encourage you to take care of yourselves and reach out for help if and when you should need it. During this time we want to stress the importance of self care and taking care of your mental health. Utah AIDS Foundation is doing its part to take extra precautions to flatten the curve and we strongly urge you to do the same. While we understand that these precautions may seem extreme or uncomfortable at times, we are confident that putting in the work now will save lives.

Yours In Solidarity,

Ahmer Afroz, Executive Director
