SALT LAKE CITY — While many of Utah’s counties added new COVID-19 cases from Monday, May 4 to Monday, May 11, these four were the most remarkable:

Salt Lake County continues see high growth in numbers and per capita compared to other counties in the state.

Among other Wasatch Front counties, Utah County has a firm hold on the second spot for case growth. Its week-to-week numbers have declined, but are still far higher than new case numbers in Davis (39 new cases) and Weber Counties (29 new cases).

Cache County is definitely not a hot spot for the virus, but having 15 additional positive tests after just one the prior week is worth a notice.

Washington County saw the biggest week-over-week uptick, which makes it tougher for them to argue for upgrading from moderate (orange) to low (yellow) risk status.
