Wyoming’s active coronavirus cases fell by 46 on Tuesday as the state’s reported recoveries exceeded the new cases.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received new reports of 91 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases Tuesday.
At the same time, the state reported 43 new laboratory-confirmed and 13 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 506 active cases, a decline of 46 from Monday.
Teton County had 70 active cases Tuesday; Laramie County had 66; Sweetwater County had 62; Uinta County had 51; Fremont County had 50; Natrona had 33; Carbon had 32; Lincoln had 27; Albany, Campbell and Park had 19; Big Horn had 10; Sheridan had nine; Platte had eight; Goshen and Washakie had six; Sublette had five; Johnson and Weston had four; Converse and Niobrara had two, and Crook and Hot Springs 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, 2020, 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.
The new confirmed and probable cases brought to 54,527 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 53,339 have recovered.
