Wyoming’s active coronavirus cases increased by three on Friday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 68 new recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases Friday.
At the same time, the state reported 65 new laboratory-confirmed and six new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 484 active cases.
Laramie County had the most active cases, with 112, while Albany had 74; Sweetwater 45; Teton 38; Natrona 35; Campbell and Fremont 29; Lincoln 25; Sublette 21; Uinta 18; Park 13; Carbon nine; Weston eight; Washakie six; Goshen and Sheridan five; Big Horn and Converse four; Johnson two, and Crook and Hot Springs had one. Niobrara and Platte have the no 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 56,873 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 55,688 have recovered.
