Wyoming’s active coronavirus cases increased by 2 on Tuesday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 61 new recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 47 new laboratory-confirmed and 18 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 412 active cases.
Laramie County had 95 active cases; while Albany County had 57; Sweetwater had 48; Natrona 44; Fremont 38; Uinta 22; Teton 17; Sublette 15; Campbell 14; Sheridan 11; Goshen and Park 10; Carbon eight; Big Horn seven; Lincoln four; Platte and Washakie three; Weston two, and Converse, Crook, Hot Springs and Johnson one.
Niobrara had no active cases 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 57,883 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 56,764 have recovered.
