Wyoming’s active coronavirus cases decreased by 96 to start the week.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 216 new recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases between Friday and Monday.
At the same time, the state reported 111 new laboratory-confirmed and nine new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 437 active cases.
Laramie County continues to have the highest number of active cases at 178; Sweetwater had 55; Campbell had 41; Natrona 34; Uinta 25; Albany 21; Park 15; Fremont 14; Sheridan 11; Teton eight; Goshen seven; Johnson six; Converse and Platte five; Carbon, Crook, Hot Springs, Sublette and Weston two, and Lincoln and Niobrara had one case each.
Big Horn and Washakie 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 61,234 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 60,072 have recovered.
