SALT LAKE CITY — A new interactive map shows hotspots of COVID-19 activity across the country by displaying each county’s 7-day rolling case average.

The map, from the Associated Press, allows users to explore data county-by-county, and automatically updates daily. 

To use the map, hover over a county for the latest 7-day rolling average of COVID-19 cases in that area. 

At a glance, the map shows the midwest continues to see high virus counts as of Friday. 

In Utah, Wasatch County had the highest rolling 7-day average of cases per 100,000 residents at 123.09, though the Wasatch Front generally remained at high levels.


How To Prevent the Spread of COVID-19 Coronavirus

COVID-19 coronavirus spreads person to person, similar to the common cold and the flu. So, to prevent it from spreading:

  • Wash hands frequently and thoroughly, with soap and water, for at least 20 seconds.
  • Don’t touch your face.
  • Wear a mask to protect yourself and others per CDC recommendations.
  • Keep children and those with compromised immune systems away from someone who is coughing or sneezing (in this instance, at least six feet).
  • If there is an outbreak near you, practice social distancing (stay at home, instead of going to the movies, sports events, or other activities).
  • Get a flu shot.
