Wyoming’s active coronavirus cases decreased by 104 from Friday, bringing the state’s total to less than 400.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 186 new recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 74 new laboratory-confirmed and five new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 348 active cases, down 104 from Friday.
Laramie County’s active cases fell dramatically from Friday to total 80, while Sweetwater had 45; Freemont 39; Teton 37; Albany and Natrona had 23; Uinta 21; Lincoln 20; Campbell 15; Sublette 14; Park eight; Sheridan seven; Goshen and Weston four; Johnson three; Converse two; Big Horn, Hot Springs and Washakie had one case each and Carbon, Crook, Niobrara and Platte had the least, with zero active cases.
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 56,529 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 55,481 have recovered.
