More than 180 new laboratory-confirmed cases of coronavirus pushed the number of active cases of the illness back over 1,300 Sunday, according to Wyoming Department of Health figures.

Figures released with the department’s daily coronavirus update showed the state received reports of 182 new confirmed cases Sunday, along with 26 probable cases.

Combined with new reports of 22 recoveries among patients with either confirmed or probable cases, the state was left with 1,313 active COVID-19 cases, an increase of 186 from Saturday.

Teton County had 246 active cases; Natrona County had 216; Uinta County had 103; Fremont County had 102; Laramie had 98; Campbell had 73; Sweetwater had 71; Albany and Sheridan had 59; Lincoln had 55; Carbon had 51; Park had 46; Goshen had 28; Big Horn had 27; Platte had 21; Washakie had 14; Converse had 13; Sublette had eight, Hot Springs had seven; Crook and Johnson had six; Weston had three, and Niobrara had one.

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.

New confirmed cases were reported in 21 counties. Natrona County had the highest number of new cases at 40, while Teton County had 38.

The additional confirmed and probable cases brought the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the illness was first detected in the state in March to 51,912.

Of those, 50,003 have recovered, according to the Department of Health.
