Three new deaths have been added to Wyoming’s coronavirus-related fatality count, bringing the state’s total to 57.

The Wyoming Department of Health announced the deaths on Tuesday afternoon.

The deaths included:

  • An older Lincoln County man who died earlier this month. The man had been hospitalized and was known to have health conditions recognized as putting patients at higher risk of serious illness related to the coronavirus.
  • An older Washakie County woman who died earlier this month. The woman was known to have health conditions recognized as putting patients at higher risk of serious illness related to COVID-19. It is unclear whether she was hospitalized.
  • An older Albany County woman who died last week. The woman was known to have health conditions recognized as putting patients at higher risk of serious illness related to the coronavirus. It is unclear whether she was hospitalized.

Deaths among Wyoming residents are added to the state’s coronavirus-related death total based on official death certificate information.

If death certificates do not describe the coronavirus as either causing or contributing to a person’s death, those deaths are not included in Wyoming’s count of coronavirus-related deaths.

Among Wyoming residents, there have now been 57 coronavirus-related deaths, 6,740 lab-confirmed cases and 1,224 probable cases reported since the pandemic began.
