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.

3,634 Total Coronavirus Cases Since March, Only 632 Active

The total number of coronavirus cases seen in Wyoming since the illness was first detected in the state in March grew to 3,634 on Tuesday, but the number of people still sick from the disease dropped slightly to total 632.

The Wyoming Department of Health, in its daily coronavirus update, said a total of 31 new laboratory-confirmed and probable cases were reported on Tuesday. However, the number of people still sick with active cases dropped by seven, thanks to the 38 recoveries reported around the state.

Carbon County had 130 active cases; Fremont County had 114; Laramie had 75; Albany had 48; Park and Sheridan had 38; Natrona had 37; Teton had 28; Goshen had 27; Campbell had 22; Washakie had 19; Sweetwater had 18; Sublette had eight; Hot Springs and Lincoln had seven; Converse, Crook and Weston had four, and Big Horn, Johnson, Platte and Uinta had one.

Niobrara County was the only county in the state with no active cases.

Health Department figures showed active cases involved 545 people with laboratory-confirmed cases and 87 with probable 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 Health Department said 21 new confirmed cases were reported in eight counties on Tuesday: Albany, Fremont, Goshen, Laramie, Natrona, Sweetwater, Teton and Weston.

Laramie, Natrona and Teton counties saw the largest increase with four new cases each.

The increase brought to 3,089 the number of laboratory-confirmed cases seen since the illness was first detected in March.

The number of probable cases, where a patient has coronavirus symptoms and has been in contact with someone with a confirmed case, went up by 10 on Tuesday to total 545 probable cases diagnosed since March.

Of the 3,634 people diagnosed with confirmed or probable cases since March, 2,965 have recovered, according to Health Department figures. Of those recoveries, 2,507 were among people with confirmed cases and 458 were among patients with probable cases.
