Wyoming’s active coronavirus cases decreased by 29 over the weekend.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 170 new recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases on Monday.
At the same time, the state reported 114 new laboratory-confirmed and 27 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 475 active cases.
Laramie County had the highest number of active cases at 89; Albany had 88; Sweetwater had 53; Uinta 45; Natrona 40; Sheridan 33; Park 24; Teton 19; Campbell 17; Carbon 15; Fremont nine; Lincoln and Niobrara six; Big Horn, Goshen, Sublette and Washakie five; Converse four; Crook and Weston two, and Hot Springs, Johnson and Platte one.
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 58,764 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 57,579 have recovered.
