Wyoming’s active coronavirus cases decreased by 14 on Tuesday from Monday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 80 new recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 50 new laboratory-confirmed and 21 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 463 active cases.
Laramie County continued to have the highest number of active cases at 161; Sweetwater had 51; Campbell 48; Park 32; Uinta 29; Natrona 27; Sheridan 21; Fremont 20; Platte 13; Albany 11; Teton 10; Big Horn nine; Carbon six; Goshen, Johnson and Sublette four; Weston three; Converse, Crook, Hot Springs and Lincoln two, while Niobrara and Washakie had one case each.
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 60,844 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 59,656 have recovered.
