Wyoming’s active coronavirus cases decreased by 39 on Monday from Friday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 187 new recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 123 new laboratory-confirmed and 25 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 441 active cases.
Laramie County had the highest number of active cases, with 87; Albany had 63; Sweetwater 59; Natrona 35; Park 34; Uinta 30; Fremont 21; Teton 15; Campbell and Carbon 14; Sheridan 12; Big Horn 10; Lincoln eight; Sublette and Washakie seven; Converse six; Niobrara five; Hot Springs and Weston four, and Goshen and Platte three.
Crook and Johnson counties had no active cases as of Monday.
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 58,290 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 57,142 have recovered.
