COVID-19 cases in Utah are spiking. Friday, Utah saw it’s highest number of new cases since the start of the pandemic.
Eddie Stenehjem is an infectious disease expert at Intermountain Healthcare. He said Utah’s current cases are rivaling the spike the state saw in July.
But he said the spike was different earlier this summer. Now, the state’s increase in cases is predominantly driven by a younger age group. Stenehjem said most of the new cases arefrom 15-24 years old.
