Utah Health Guidance Levels

The COVID-19 Transmission Index clarifies the public health metrics that are used to determine which counties are at what level of transmission: high, moderate, or low. These levels correspond directly to the case rates, positivity rates, and ICU utilization.

The data helps us understand the real risk of transmission in our communities. Important health behaviors, based on epidemiology and medical science, are described at each level to protect yourself, your family, and your community from COVID-19.
