Wyoming’s active coronavirus declined by 55 to start the week.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 240 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases between Friday and Monday.
At the same time, the state reported 136 new laboratory-confirmed and 50 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 575 active cases.
Laramie County continued to have the highest number of active cases at 227; Sweetwater had 39; Campbell 33; Uinta 28; Albany 26; Natrona 25; Converse and Teton 22; Fremont 21; Carbon 20; Lincoln 19; Park 18; Sublette 16; Platte 15; Hot Springs 10; Goshen nine; Johnson and Washakie six; Sheridan five, and Big Horn, Crook, Niobrara and Weston had two.
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 63,709 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 62,373 have recovered.
