Exposures: Exposures are determined through LHD and UDOH case investigations. Each case is mapped to a single “primary exposure”. Please note that some cases have multiple potential exposures, so cases are mapped to exposures in the following order: 1) Known close contact to a confirmed case, 2) Travel in the past 14 days, 3) Healthcare (either through being a healthcare worker, patient, or visitor in a healthcare setting), 4) In-state transmission with no known contacts, 5) Under investigation. In-state transmission with no known contacts is defined as a patient with no known out of state travel, close contacts, or healthcare exposures.
Hospitalization Data: Hospitalizations represent the total number of cases that have been admitted to hospitals - this count does not represent the number of cases currently in the hospital.
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.
