Wyoming’s active coronavirus cases decreased by 41 on Tuesday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 64 new recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 15 new laboratory-confirmed and 10 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 428 active cases, down 41 from Monday.
Teton reported the most active cases with 102, Laramie had 94; Sweetwater 36; Fremont 35; Natrona 33; Lincoln 23; Campbell 19; Uinta 18; Albany 13; Carbon and Park 12; Big Horn eight; Platte and Sheridan six; Goshen four; Johnson three; Converse two; Hot Springs and Weston one each, while Crook, Niobrara, Sublette and Washakie report zero cases.
Active cases are determined by adding the total confirmed and probable coronavirus cases diagnosed since the illness first surfaced in Wyoming on March 11, 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 55,352 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 54,231 have recovered.
