Wasatch County Data

UPDATED: November 30, 2023 (9:30 AM)

Data is for the entire pandemic: from March 2020 to present


Overview Trends: Table & Graphs

Case Counts are a leading indicator of COVID-19 transmission. This is the number of people who test positive and are reported to Utah Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) each day by health care providers and testing sites. The actual number of cases in Utah is higher than what is reported due to mild cases not feeling ill enough to seek care and get tested, more people receiving at-home tests that are not reported to DHHS, and limited testing availability during surges. Because of these limitations, it’s important to consider other measures along with case counts of COVID-19 transmission and severity.

Syndromic Surveillance looks at the percent of Wasatch County residents visiting Emergency Departments (EDs) who have been diagnosed with COVID-19. It is a measure of community transmission that is not based on testing. Syndromic Surveillance may lag behind case counts because it takes time for cases to develop symptoms severe enough to require an emergency department visit

Metric Previous 7 Day Period Current 7 Day Period Change
Seven-Day Average Case Count 3.0 Cases/Day 2.3 Cases/Day - 0.7 Cases/Day
% Emergency Dept Visits Diagnosed with COVID 4.9% 4.2% - 0.7 Percentage Points

Laboratory Results:  Results are presented by the date a sample was tested, if this data is unavailable it is reported by the date the result was reported to the Utah Department of Health.  Laboratory positives may not match confirmed cases due to ongoing investigations, confirmatory testing, and reporting lag.

Percent Positivity (Person/Person):  Percent positivity based on the total number of unique individuals who tested positive divided by the total unique number of people tested (i.e., the number of people tested positive over the number of people tested).  This method does not account for people who have had repeat positive or negative tests in the past 90 days. This is the method the State of Utah used to report percent positivity from the beginning of the pandemic through February 11, 2021.

Percent Positivity (Test/Test):  Percent positivity based on the total positive tests divided by the total number of tests administered (i.e., the number of all positive tests over the number of all tests in a day).  This method accounts for people who have repeat positive or negative test results and more accurately reflects an increase in testing. This is the method used by the State of Utah to report percent positivity starting February 18, 2021.
