Wyoming’s total of active coronavirus cases declined by 27 to end the week.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports Friday of 95 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 41 new laboratory-confirmed and 27 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 630 active cases.
Laramie County continued to lead the state for active cases with 268. Sweetwater had 49; Campbell 32; Natrona 28; Albany 26; Teton 25; Carbon, Fremont and Uinta 24; Lincoln and Platte 20; Park 19; Converse 15; Sublette 13; Hot Springs 10; Goshen seven; Sheridan six; Crook five; Johnson and Washakie four; Big Horn and Weston three, and Niobrara County had one.
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 63,523 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 62,133 have recovered.
