Wyoming’s active coronavirus increased by 11 to end the week.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports Friday of 99 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 98 new laboratory-confirmed and 12 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 802 active cases, the first time since Feb. 11 the state has recorded more than 800 active cases.
Laramie County continued to have the highest number of active cases at 246. Sweetwater had 66; Uinta 57; Campbell 50; Fremont 48; Natrona 47; Teton 38; Converse 37; Carbon 30; Platte 26; Lincoln 25; Albany 24; Goshen and Sublette 20; Park 16; Washakie 11; Big Horn 10; Weston eight; Hot Springs and Johnson seven; Sheridan 6; Niobrara two, and Crook 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 64,251 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 62,683 have recovered.
