Proactive and Preventative Measures Regarding COVID-19
The Utah Jazz have implemented proactive and preventative measures to minimize risk of potential exposure to COVID-19 (coronavirus) for our employees and guests. These include, but are not limited to:
- Sanitizing the entire arena using hospital-grade disinfectant spray after each event.
- Wiping down and disinfecting all areas of the building following each event.
- Wiping down and disinfecting each elevator on an ongoing basis during and after each event.
- Increasing the frequency with which we’re cleaning all surfaces and objects that are touched often throughout the facility, and ensuring the use of EPA-approved cleaning agents that are effective against coronavirus.
- Permitting guests to bring in disposable wipes or personal hand sanitizers for their own use.
- Encouraging all event attendees to practice proper hygiene, and providing access to hand sanitizer in addition to the numerous handwashing stations and restrooms throughout Vivint Smart Home Arena.
For all Vivint Smart Home Arena guests, we ask the following:
- If you’re feeling sick, regardless of your symptoms, please refrain from attending public events.
- Please wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds—especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, and then throw the tissue in the trash and clean your hands.

The Larry H. Miller Group of Companies (LHM Group) today announced proactive and preventative measures its businesses have implemented to minimize for employees, customers and guests their risk of potential exposure to COVID-19 (the Coronavirus). A companywide working group has been formed to monitor and address the ongoing situation.
“Our mission is to enrich lives by providing world-class and memorable shared experiences, and in doing so, the health and safety of our employees and stakeholders are paramount,” said Steve Starks, CEO of the Larry H. Miller Group of Companies. “Therefore, we have asked each of our businesses, including automotive dealerships, theatre complexes, sporting and entertainment venues, and our office buildings to ensure we have clean and sanitized workplaces and common areas. We will strive to operate effectively and ensure that our essential services continue uninterrupted.”
To protect against the spread of viruses and bacteria, including Coronavirus, employees and guests are encouraged to exercise the preventative measures recommended by public health authorities, such as frequent hand washing, coughing and sneezing into the elbow or tissue, and paying attention to signs and symptoms of the Coronavirus.
“We have asked our employees, and would extend the same invitation to our guests and customers, that if they are feeling ill, especially if they have any of the documented symptoms of the Coronavirus, that they exercise caution and delay visiting our places of businesses until they are symptom-free,” said Starks.
The LHM Group is working closely with government authorities, sports leagues, and business affiliates to not only understand and follow the most current public health guidelines and recommendations but to identify and implement appropriate best practices.
- High-contact surfaces, such as door handles, and high-use areas, such as bathrooms and common rooms, are being sanitized multiple times daily.
- Particular emphasis is being placed on disinfecting high-traffic areas such as box offices and retail stores.
- Additional hand sanitizing dispensers have been purchased and placed at business entry points, and bathroom soap dispensers are well-stocked and operational.
- Increased signage and information, including recommended hygiene practices, are posted in visible areas for greater awareness.
In addition to the increased cleaning and sanitization practices at each of the business locations, the LHM Group has issued travel guidelines and personal hygiene recommendations for its associates. Employees have been asked to suspend all non-essential business trips and use technology as a suitable alternative. Those who travel outside of the United States for personal reasons have been asked to abide by all U.S. government advisories, alerts and guidance, and are directed to self-quarantine as appropriate.
