"Notice to those applying for licensure in the state of Utah." 

Fingerprinting services at the Division of Professional Licensing (DOPL) are temporarily suspended.  All fingerprinting in Cedar City (SUU Police, Iron County Sheriff's Office and Cedar City Police) have also been suspended.

Because of the temporary suspension of FBI fingerprint backgrounds checks, DOPL is issuing temporary licenses based on Utah-only background checks.  At this time, applicants will be required to obtain FBI fingerprint check within 180 days of receiving their temporary license.  If an applicant's later fingerprint check does not reveal any concerning information, their license application will be considered complete.  If concerning information is revealed, DOPL may investigate and take action against the license. Applicants who fail to obtain the required fingerprint check may face disciplinary action. from DOPL "Urgent COVID-19 Agency Notices"  https://dopl.utah.gov/covid19.html
