The Bankruptcy Court has entered General Order 20-002 to assist in the effort to stem the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The General Order states that all hearings scheduled in the Court through April 13, 2020, shall be conducted by telephone, unless otherwise ordered by the hearing judge. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has advised people to take precautions in light of the COVID-19 outbreak. The Governor of the State of Utah has recommended that public gatherings be limited. 
 
Consistent with General Order 20-002 and pursuant to direction from the Acting United States Trustee for Region 19, all Chapter 7 and Chapter 11 meetings of creditors under 11 U.S.C. § 341 scheduled to occur on March 16, 2020, through and including April 13, 2020, shall be continued to a date after April 13, 2020. Trustees assigned to specific cases will advise debtors’ counsel and debtors without attorneys of the continued dates of these meetings. In cases where written notice of the continuance could not be served prior to the scheduled meetings of creditors, the dates and times of the continued meetings of creditors will be announced at the originally scheduled meetings of creditors. Debtors, counsel, creditors, and parties in interest should not appear at the originally scheduled meetings of creditors and no examinations of debtors will occur. Debtors and other parties in interest should contact the trustee assigned to particular cases if they have any questions about the dates and times of the continued meetings of creditors.
 
All Chapter 13 meetings of creditors under 11 U.S.C. § 341 scheduled to occur on March 16, 2020, through and including April 13, 2020, will be conducted by video. Debtors, counsel, creditors, and parties in interest should not appear in person. Additional information is available at http://www.ch13ut.org.
