12:48 p.m.: State health department reports 136 confirmed COVID-19 cases in Utah

Utah has 136 confirmed cases of COVID-19, state officials reported Saturday, up from 112 on Friday.

Salt Lake County has 14 new cases of coronavirus since Friday, raising its total to 60. That includes 13 new resident cases and one involving a vistor. That nonresident brings the statewide total of out-of-staters to 11.

Summit County has discovered four new cases, bringing its total to 39.

That means 73% of Utah's cases are in either Salt Lake or Summit counties.

Davis County is at 14 cases, up two from the day before. Wasatch County has three new cases, for a total of seven.

UDOH reported that at least 2,560 Utahns have now been tested. This is likely an undercount, since private labs are not required to report to UDOH the number of tests they perform.
