Utah has reported a record-high number of new Covid-19 cases over the last 24 hours — 715, state health data shows.
This is the highest daily case increase the state has reported, according to records that go back to early March.
Although the state has reported several sharp spikes in daily cases over the last few weeks, the state’s overall Covid-19 case trend is steady, according to both the state’s epidemic curve and CNN’s analysis of Johns Hopkins University data.
Utah does not have a statewide mask order in place but at least two counties, Salt Lake and Summit, have been given permission by Gov. Gary Herbert to enact county-wide mandates, according to CNN affiliate KSTU.
