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 people with active coronavirus cases grew by 10 on Monday with the reporting of 152 new laboratory-confirmed cases.
The Wyoming Department of Health, in its daily coronavirus cases, also said the number of people diagnosed with probable cases of coronavirus increased by 39 Monday, however, the number of people to recover from both confirmed and probable cases increased by 181.
The combined numbers left Wyoming with 1,690 active cases, an increase of 10 over Sunday’s numbers.
