Testing

The Utah Department of Health reports 2,110,759 residents have been tested so far, which is an increase of 7,143 people tested since yesterday.

Of those, a total of 359,641 have tested positive for COVID-19. That’s an increase of 1,060 new cases from Thursday’s report.

The rolling 7-day average for positive tests is 1,025 per day.

The rolling 7-day average for percent positivity of “people over people” is 14.7%, and the rolling 7-day average for percent of positivity of “tests over tests” is 6.6%.

Hospitalizations

Currently, 312 people are hospitalized with confirmed cases of COVID-19, and 118 of those people are in intensive care units. Another 33 people are hospitalized with suspected cases of COVID-19.

While COVID-19 hospitalizations are down, ICU capacity is up.

Utah’s intensive care units are 84% full. The ICU beds in the state’s referral centers are 86.6% full.

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.
