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 increased by 607 on Monday as the state reported 1,251 new confirmed cases of the virus.
The Wyoming Department of Health, in its daily coronavirus update, said 11 new probable cases were also reported, while reports of 629 recoveries were received.
Combined, the numbers left the state with 11,793 active cases of the coronavirus, an increase of 607 over Sunday’s figures.
Natrona County had 2,601 active cases; Laramie County had 1,689; Albany County had 1,535; Campbell County had 1,352; Fremont had 761; Sheridan had 586; Sweetwater had 481; Goshen had 387; Uinta had 375; Park had 306; Lincoln had 246; Teton had 169; Platte had 168; Johnson and Weston had 160; Washakie had 152; Carbon had 141; Converse had 122; Sublette had 109; Big Horn had 97; Hot Springs had 76; Crook had 72, and Niobrara had 48.
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.
All of Wyoming’s counties except for Weston reported an increase in confirmed cases, with Laramie County having the highest number of new cases at 238.
The new confirmed cases brought the total of confirmed cases seen since the first coronavirus case was detected in Wyoming in mid-March to 25,560.
The number of probable cases, meanwhile, grew to 3,871 with the reporting of 11 new probable cases. A probable case is defined as one where the patient has coronavirus symptoms and has been exposed to someone with a confirmed case, but has not been tested.
The number of people to recover from confirmed and probable cases of coronavirus stood at 17,436 on Monday with the new reports of 629 recoveries.
