The Wyoming Department of Health said at the same time, the number of probable cases in the state increased by 98.

The state also said it received reports of 505 new recoveries, leaving Wyoming with 10,891 active cases, an increase of 744 from Monday.

Every county in the state reported new cases, with four reporting triple-digit increases in confirmed cases. Natrona County had 221 new cases; Campbell had 154; Fremont had 126 and Laramie had 123.
