Hospitalizations

Currently, 122 people are hospitalized with confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 61 of those people are in intensive care units.

Utah’s ICUs were 68.2% full and the ICU beds in Utah’s referral centers were 70.4% full Monday.

“At about 69% overall ICU utilization, ICUs in Utah’s major hospitals with the ability to provide best care for COVID-19 patients begin to reach staffing capacity,” UDOH officials said. “Seventy-two percent use among all hospitals and 77% in referral center hospitals creates major strains on the health care system. When 85% capacity is reached, Utah will be functionally out of staffed ICU beds, indicating an overwhelmed hospital system.”

Deaths

No new deaths were reported Monday. To date, the virus has killed 2,159 of the state’s residents.
