The number of Wyoming residents with coronavirus grew to 11 on Tuesday as an older adult male in Laramie County tested positive for the illness.

The Wyoming Department of Health announced that testing at the Wyoming Public Health Laboratory revealed the infection. No other information was immediately available.

The case marks the 11th in Wyoming and came just one day after seven people connected with a Lander retirement home tested positive for the virus. All seven were linked with one older male who was living at the Showboat Retirement Center.

Laramie County is the third in the state where the illness has surfaced. In addition to the Fremont County cases, two cases were diagnosed in Sheridan County.
