Lyme in Utah: The most current incidence of Lyme disease is not available from the Utah Department of Health. As per the CDC, compared to other states in 2017 Utah was at the very low end of the number of cases of Lyme, at 10 confirmed cases and 15 probable cases. Lyme disease is very often over self-diagnosed. See your doctor if you have questions specific to yourself.

Uncommon, # unknown: Lyme is relatively uncommon in Utah,with 25 confirmed or probable cases reported last year. However, that data is unreliable,as the CDC criteria are so stringent that most cases don't meet them and most cases aren't reported. The CDC estimates only 10% of cases are reported and some experts believe the numbers are even higher. Common or not, people in Utah get it. See https://tinyurl.com/y9qaaj4j
