SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah department of health on Friday reports 21 new deaths from COVID-19 since the day before. That's the most deaths reported in a single day in the state since January.

The health department reported 20 deaths on January 15, 2021.

This comes on the heels of an announcement Friday by Intermountain Healthcare that they will suspend most non-emergency surgeries as they grapple with an "unsustainable" number of mostly unvaccinated COVID-19 patients.
