At the same time, the state reported 44 new laboratory-confirmed and 12 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 481 active cases.
Laramie County continued to have the highest number of active cases at 224; Sweetwater has 58; Campbell 43; Natrona 34; Albany 23; Uinta 20; Fremont, Goshen, Park, Sheridan and Teton nine; Converse, Crook, Johnson and Platte six; Carbon three; Weston two, and Big Horn, Hot Springs, Lincoln, Niobrara, and Sublette counties had one case.
Washakie County had no active cases as of Wednesday.
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 61,359 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 60,144 have recovered.
