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.

The number of active coronavirus cases in Wyoming declined again Monday as the state recorded 45 more recoveries from the illness.
Wyoming Department of Health figures from its daily coronavirus update showed that the 45 recoveries offset the 22 new cases recorded across the state, pushing the number of people still ill with the disease down by 23 to total 624.
Carbon County had 130 active cases; Fremont had 81; Laramie had 68; Albany had 47; Campbell had 40; Park had 39; Natrona had 38; Goshen had 37; Sheridan had 36; Teton had 34; Uinta had 15; Sweetwater had 13; Washakie had 12; Lincoln had nine; Converse had eight; Weston had six; Big Horn had four; Crook had three; Hot Springs had two, and Platte and Sublette had one.
Johnson and Niobrara counties had no active cases.
According to Department of Health figures, active cases were found among 534 people with confirmed cases of coronavirus and 90 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.
Eleven counties reported new laboratory-confirmed cases Monday: Big Horn, Campbell, Carbon, Fremont, Goshen, Laramie, Park, Sweetwater, Teton, Uinta and Weston. Campbell and Park counties saw the biggest increase in cases at four each.
The increase brought the total number of confirmed cases diagnosed since the illness was first detected in Wyoming in mid-March to 3,264.
The number of probable cases seen since mid-March, cases where patients have coronavirus symptoms and have been in contact with someone with a confirmed case, to 578, an increase of three from Sunday.
Meanwhile, the number of people to recover from coronavirus since the pandemic began increased to 3,181, including 2,693 people with confirmed cases and 488 with probable cases.
