The number of active coronavirus cases in Wyoming decreased by 286 on Sunday, even as the state reported 164 new laboratory-confirmed cases.

When combined with new reports of 460 recoveries, Wyoming was left with 2,231 active cases, a decline of 286 from Saturday’s 2,517 and an almost 80 percent decrease from one month ago. 

On Nov. 20, the number of active coronavirus cases statewide reported by the Department of Health was 10,637.

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.

As of Sunday, Laramie County had the most active cases in the state with 328; Natrona County had 301; Sweetwater County had 277; Campbell County had 234; Park County had 151; Uinta County had 109; Fremont County had 108; Sheridan County had 84; Teton County had 76; Washakie County had 75; Albany County and Lincoln County each had 68; both Big Horn and Johnson counties had 64; Converse County had 44; Goshen County had 38; Carbon County had 32; Sublette County had 26; Platte County had 25; Hot Springs County had 22; Weston County had 19; Crook County had 15; Niobrara County had three. 

New cases were reported in 20 of Wyoming’s 23 counties, with Hot Springs, Johnson and Niobrara counties showing no new cases. Sweetwater County had the highest increase in cases with 37; Laramie County had 34; Uinta County had 18; and Park and Teton counties each reported 10 new cases.  The remaining counties had single-digit increases in coronavirus cases. 

The increases in laboratory-confirmed cases brought to 35,982 the total number of cases seen in Wyoming since the coronavirus first surfaced here in mid-March. 

The Health Department, in its daily coronavirus update, said the number of probable cases in the state also increased by 10 on Sunday to total 5,680 since the pandemic began.

The number of people to have recovered from confirmed and probable cases grew to 39,080 on Sunday.
