Coronavirus Spike Worsens In Utah As Governor Mulls Measures

A spike of coronavirus cases in Utah that began after schools and colleges resumed classes reached a new peak Friday with a record number of single day confirmed cases. 

Gov. Gary Herbert said he will meet with his command team on Monday to consider new measures to combat a spread of COVID-19 that he said makes him question if previous warnings and public education are enough. State data show that the 1,117 cases reported Friday surpassed the previous record of about 875 hit twice in July.
