Wyoming’s active coronavirus cases declined by 57 over the long holiday weekend.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports Tuesday of 277 new recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 143 new laboratory-confirmed and 77 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 458 active cases
Laramie County remained the county with the highest number of active cases at 105; Sweetwater had 79; Campbell 56; Natrona 37; Fremont 32; Albany 29; Park 24; Uinta 22; Sheridan 20; Platte nine; Teton seven; Big Horn, Crook and Goshen six; Johnson five; Converse, Sublette and Weston three; Lincoln and Washakie two, and Hot Springs and Niobrara one.
Carbon county had no active cases as of 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 60,364 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 59,187 have recovered.
