SALT LAKE CITY — Utah's COVID-19 death toll topped 800 Tuesday.

The state still has extremely high COVID-19 numbers, but a slight downward trend continued Tuesday as the Dept. of Health announced 2,701 new cases.

Eleven additional deaths reported Tuesday bring the total to 808.

There is concern another surge could be triggered as families gather for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. On Monday, Governor Gary Herbert dialed back restrictions on gatherings that had been limited to those living in the same home.
