Wyoming’s active coronavirus cases decreased by 4 on Tuesday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received new reports of 64 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases Tuesday.
At the same time, the state reported 44 new laboratory-confirmed and 25 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 454 active cases, a decrease of 4 from Monday, marking the second consecutive day there have been fewer than 500 active cases in the state.
Laramie reported 79 active cases; Teton had 78; Sweetwater 65; Natrona 47; Fremont 38; Uinta 27; Lincoln 24; Sheridan 15; Campbell 14; Albany, Carbon and Park each had 10; Goshen eight; Big Horn and Platte had seven; Sublette four; Washakie three; Converse, Hot Springs and Jonson had two each; Weston had one and Niobrara recorded zero active cases for the second day in a row.
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 54,972 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 53,827 have recovered.
