Wyoming’s active coronavirus decreased by 86 over the weekend.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that between Friday and Monday, the department received reports of 286 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 148 new laboratory-confirmed and 52 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 716 active cases.
Laramie County had the highest number of active cases at 189 Sweetwater had 57; Uinta 50; Campbell 48; Converse 47; Fremont 46; Natrona 45; Teton 41; Albany 29; Carbon 25; Park 19; Platte 18; Goshen and Lincoln 17; Sublette 14; Big Horn 13; Sheridan 11; Weston 10; Washakie nine; Johnson five; Hot Springs three; Niobrara two, while Crook 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 64,451 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 62,969 have recovered.
