Wyoming’s number of active coronavirus cases declined by 18 to end the week.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports on Friday of 83 new recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 50 new laboratory-confirmed and 15 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 434 active cases, a decline of 18 from Thursday.
Laramie County continued to have the highest number of active cases at 222; Sweetwater had 46; Campbell 30; Natrona 23; Uinta 20; Albany 19; Fremont 13: Teton nine; Johnson and Park eight; Goshen seven; Sheridan six; Platte five; Crook and Hot Springs four; Converse three; Big Horn and Carbon two, and Lincoln, Niobrara and Weston each had one.
Sublette and Washakie counties had no active cases as of Friday.
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 61,490 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 60,322 have recovered.
