Currently, 554 people are hospitalized with COVID-19, and 194 of those people are in intensive care units. Another 41 people are hospitalized with suspected cases of COVID-19.

The state’s ICUs are 85.1% full, which is just above the threshold for quality ICU care due to the number of caregivers available.

Utah’s referral center ICU beds are 87% occupied.

Referral Centers are the 16 hospitals in Utah with the capability to provide the best care for patients with COVID-19. Because most patients are transferred to these facilities, their utilization is the best reflection of the true hospital capacity in Utah when looking at ICU beds.
