The number of active coronavirus cases in Wyoming fell slightly again as the number of  new laboratory-confirmed cases grew by less than 20.

The Wyoming Department of Health, in its coronavirus update, reported an increase in confirmed cases of 14 and an increase in probable cases of 36.

Reports of recoveries among people with confirmed and probable cases increased by 76 on Sunday, leaving the state with 773 active cases, a decline of 26 from Friday. The Health Department has stopped issuing coronavirus updates on Saturday.

Teton County had 135 active cases on Sunday; Fremont County had 115; Natrona County had 96; Laramie County had 67; Carbon had 62; Sweetwater had 54; Sheridan had 46; Albany had 38; Park had 37; Uinta had 34; Converse had 24; Campbell had 17; Lincoln had 13; Goshen and Platte had nine; Big Horn had seven; Washakie had five; Weston had two, and Hot Springs, Johnson and Sublette had one.

Crook and Niobrara counties reported no active cases on Sunday.

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.

A total of 46 new confirmed cases was reported in nine counties on Sunday, however, a data adjustment by the Health Department reduced the total confirmed case count in seven counties by 32, leaving the state with a net increase of 14 cases.

Teton County had the highest number of new confirmed cases with 11. Fremont and Park counties saw seven new cases.

The department reduced confirmed case totals in Natrona County (nine), Campbell County (seven), Converse County (four), Laramie County (four), Hot Springs County (three), Washakie County (three) and Sublette County (two).

The new confirmed and probable cases brought to 53,136 the number of people diagnosed with COVID-19 since the first case was detected in Wyoming in mid-March.

Of those, 51,716 have recovered since the pandemic began, according to Department of Health figures.
