Lab tests have been administered to 2,493,089 people, an increase of 2,695 since yesterday. Tests administered number 4,480,612, an increase of 5,021 tests since yesterday.

UDoH reports that the increased number of tests is due to a change in definition. Previously UDOH was reporting one test, per person, per day. However with continued reliance on antigen tests and more of these being confirmed by PCR within the same day, UDOH is now reporting the count of these confirmatory tests in the “Total Test” number. Percent positivity Test/Test method will still be calculated with one test, per person per day.

The rolling seven-day average for positive tests is 382 per day.¬†The rolling seven-day average for percent positivity of “people over people” is 6.9%. The rolling seven-day average for percent positivity of “tests over tests” is 3.5%.

There are 138 people currently hospitalized with COVID-19. Total hospitalizations from the beginning of the outbreak are 15,922.
