Wyoming’s active coronavirus cases increased by 18 on Tuesday from Monday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 58 new recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 49 new laboratory-confirmed and 29 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 376 active cases.
Laramie County had the most active cases on Tuesday at 79; Albany County had 61; Natrona and Teton have 32; Sweetwater 29; Campbell 26; Goshen 18; Fremont 17; Sheridan 16; Carbon 14; Uinta 13; Park nine; Sublette six; Weston five; Big Horn and Platte four; Crook and Lincoln three; Converse and Johnson two, and Hot Springs one.
Niobrara and Washakie counties had no active cases on Tuesday.
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 57,456 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 56,375 have recovered.
