Editor’s Note: This is a map of the active coronavirus cases in each county across Wyoming. The number of active cases is determined by subtracting the total number of recoveries seen since the illness first reached Wyoming in mid-March from the total number of confirmed and probable cases diagnosed during the same time period and taking into account deaths related to the disease.

559 Active Coronavirus Cases In Wyoming On Sunday

After several days of declines, the number of active coronavirus cases in Wyoming went up by 34 on Sunday with new cases reported in 14 counties.

The Wyoming Department of Health, in its daily coronavirus update, said 35 new confirmed cases were detected in Wyoming on Sunday, pushing the number of active cases up to 559.

Laramie County had 91 active cases; Fremont had 90; Carbon had 65; Park had 45; Teton had 43; Uinta had 42; Albany and Washakie counties had 32; Sheridan had 23; Natrona had 18; Goshen and Lincoln had 17; Campbell had 15; Sweetwater had 13; Hot Springs and Sublette counties had five; Big Horn had three; Converse had two, and Johnson had one.

Crook, Niobrara, Platte and Weston counties had no active cases.

Active cases are determined by adding the total confirmed and probable coronavirus cases diagnosed since the illness first surfaced in Wyoming on March 12, subtracting the number of recoveries during the same period among patients with both confirmed and probable cases and taking into account the number of deaths attributed to the illness.

The total number of confirmed coronavirus cases seen since the disease was first detected in Wyoming in mid-March went up by 35 on Sunday to total 2,533, while the number of probable cases seen during the same time period went up by two to total 517.

Fourteen counties reported new confirmed cases Sunday: Big Horn, Fremont, Goshen, Hot Springs, Laramie, Lincoln, Natrona, Park, Sheridan, Sublette, Sweetwater, Teton, Uinta and Washakie. Washakie saw the biggest increase with seven new cases.

The number of people to recover from coronavirus since March went up by three Sunday to total 2,465, including 2,043 recoveries among those with confirmed cases and 422 among those with probable cases.
