Wyoming’s active coronavirus cases increased on Friday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 79 new recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 58 new laboratory-confirmed and 25 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 440 active cases.
Laramie County 105 active cases; Albany had 70; Natrona 46; Sweetwater 40; Teton 34; Fremont 26; Campbell 22; Uinta 15; Sheridan 14; Goshen 13; Sublette 12; Carbon 11; Big Horn and Park nine; Johnson, Lincoln and Weston three; Hot Springs and Platte two, and Converse had one.
Crook, Niobrara and Washakie counties had no active cases as of Friday.
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 57,696 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 56,551 have recovered.
