The Wyoming Department of Health, in its daily coronavirus update, said it received reports of 647 new confirmed cases, along with 119 new probable cases.

At the same time, the number of reported recoveries among patients with either confirmed or probable cases increased by 591, leaving the state with 2,464 active cases, an increase of 175 from Thursday.

Laramie County had 364 active cases; Natrona County had 343; Sweetwater County had 323; Campbell had 267; Park had 165; Fremont had 140; Uinta had 110; Sheridan had 95; Teton had 90; Washakie had 77; Lincoln had 76; Big Horn had 73; Albany had 70; Converse had 50; Carbon had 41; Goshen had 39; Sublette had 31; Johnson had 25; Platte had 23; Crook had 22; Hot Springs had 19; Weston had 17, and Niobrara had four.
