SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Department of Health is reporting 527 new cases of COVID-19 on Wednesday, with three deaths since yesterday. The number of daily new cases is the largest in weeks.

The rolling 7-day average for positive tests has increased to 311 per day. The rolling 7-day average for percent positivity of "people over people" is 8.6%. and the rolling 7-day average for percent positivity of "tests over tests" is 5.7%.
167 people in Utah are currently hospitalized with COVID-19.
