Wyoming’s active coronavirus cases increased by 17 from Monday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 63 new recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 58 new laboratory-confirmed and 24 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 457 active cases.
Laramie County’s case count dropped another 10 but it still had the most active cases, 86, while Albany went up by four, to 76; Sweetwater had 41; Natrona 40; Teton 30; Fremont 28; Campbell 27; Uinta 24; Sublette 22; Lincoln 15; Park 14; Carbon and Sheridan 11; Weston nine; Converse and Washakie five; Crook four; Goshen and Johnson three; Big Horn two, and Hot Springs one.
Niobrara and Platte counties had 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 57,070 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 55,910 have recovered.
