When Utah reports no data, several days of data, or unusual data (such as decreases in values that should increase), our volunteers note it here on the date the anomaly occurred. We also note here changes in our own methodology that affect the data.
On March 4, 2021, and March 5, 2021 Utah did not update their COVID-19 dashboards by the time of our daily update. As a result, we were unable to update their Cases (confirmed + probable) and hospitalization and death data. We will backfill the missing data as soon as it has been reviewed.
On February 12, 2021, we cleared the history of Utah's Confirmed cases field, which we previously filled using data from its positive people tested via PCR number. Utah does not present this figure as confirmed cases and instead calls its main case number, which includes both PCR and antigen tests, "lab-confirmed cases." We did not duplicate Utah's main case number into Confirmed cases to replace this positive PCR individuals number because the definition the state uses for "confirmed" is not in accordance with CSTE definitions.
On December 25, 2020, Utah did not update their data by the time of our daily update, presumably due to the Christmas holiday.
On November 25, 2020, Utah announced via their official Utah COVID-19 response twitter that there would be no update to their data on November 26, 2020. Additionally, the data that would normally have been published on November 26, 2020 will be included in the November 27, 2020 update.
As of November 9, 2020, our Confirmed cases metric for Utah is sourced from the data download available on the Utah dashboard, which separates PCR and antigen tests. This caused a slight decrease in the number of Confirmed Cases.
As of November 6, 2020, our Total PCR tests (people) and Negative PCR tests (people) metrics for Utah are sourced from the data download available on the Utah dashboard, which separates PCR and antigen tests.
As of October 28, 2020, our Total PCR tests (specimens) and Positive PCR tests (specimens) metrics for Utah are sourced from the data download available on the Utah dashboard, which separates PCR and antigen tests. Total PCR tests (specimens) is calculated by adding positive and negative PCR tests from this download.
As of October 29, 2020, Utah's
totalTestResults field represents encounters instead of pos+neg. The number of unique people ever tested remains available in the
As of July 16, 2020, Utah is reporting both specimens and people tested. We report positives and negatives based on the number of people tested.
As of June 11, 2020, Utah reports a combined case count for total intubated patients and patients on a ventilator. We report this figure as Ever on ventilator.
