Wyoming’s active coronavirus cases decreased by 10 from Monday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 56 new recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 33 new laboratory-confirmed and 13 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 409 active cases, down 10 from Monday.
Laramie County’s active cases declined from Monday, but the county continues to have the highest number at 95, while Teton County’s numbers dropped to 55; Fremont had 49; Sweetwater 36; Lincoln 34; Natrona 30; Albany 20; Uinta 19; Sheridan 16; Campbell 14; Park and Sublette each have eight; Big Horn, Carbon, Goshen and Johnson have four each; Platte had three; Crook and Weston had two, and Hot Springs and Washakie have one each.
Converse and Niobrara counties have the lowest number of active cases, zero.
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 56,236 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 55,132 have recovered.
