Wyoming’s active coronavirus cases decreased by 30 on Monday from Friday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 152 new recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases over the weekend.
At the same time, the state reported 91 new laboratory-confirmed and 31 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 410 active cases.
Laramie’s County’s active cases dropped by 10 but the county continued to have the highest number in the state at 95; Albany County had 59; Sweetwater had 51; Natrona 44; Fremont 32; Uinta 21; Campbell 20; Teton 18; Sublette 15; Sheridan 13; Park 10; Goshen eight; Big Horn and Carbon six; Lincoln four; Hot Springs, Platte and Weston two; Crook and Johnson one, while Converse, Niobrara and Washakie reported 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 57,818 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 56,703 have recovered.
