There are currently 6,151 active cases statewide, with the greatest number — 1,293 — in Natrona County.
People who have recovered from confirmed and probable cases of the virus now number 29,533.
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.
