Wyoming’s coronavirus case count increased to 23 Saturday as the Wyoming Department of Health reported a newly diagnosed case in Carbon County.
The case was the first for the county. No further details about the diagnosis were immediately available.
On Friday, the state’s coronavirus case count went up by four with one new case each in Natrona, Teton, Fremont and Campbell counties.
The increase in case counts follows predictions by state officials that the number of confirmed cases would rise with increased testing in Wyoming’s population.
According to the Health Department, by Saturday morning, 409 tests had been processed at the state Public Health Laboratory and commercial labs had conducted 31 tests.
