The number of active coronavirus cases in Wyoming declined by 29 on Thursday from Wednesday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 95 new recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 44 new laboratory-confirmed and 22 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 452 active cases.
Laramie County had the highest number of active cases at 208; Sweetwater had 53; Campbell 36; Natrona 29; Albany 24; Uinta 19; Fremont 13: Teton nine; Johnson and Park eight; Goshen, Platte and Sheridan seven; Crook six; Carbon five; Converse and Hot Springs three; Big Horn and Weston two, and Lincoln, Niobrara and Sublette had one.
Washakie County had no active cases as of Thursday.
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 61,425 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 60,239 have recovered.
