SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Department of Health reported just 462 new COVID-19 cases Monday, along with two new deaths.

With Monday's cases, the state's total now rises to 361,756 overall cases.

The state's rolling seven-day average for the number of positive tests dropped under 1,000 to 951 per day, and the seven-day average for the percent of positive tests is 14.1.

Starting Tuesday, UDOH will change to the "test over test" metric to determine levels of transmission in the 7-day average percent metric, instead of the "people over people" version it has been using since last spring.

The rolling 7-day average for percent positivity of "tests over tests" is 6.4%.

Utah has also administered 525,033 total vaccines.

A total of 1,796 people have died of COVID-19 in Utah, including the two deaths reported Monday:

  • Male, between 65-84, Weber County resident, hospitalized at time of death
  • Male, between 65-84, Utah County resident, hospitalized at time of death
