Wyoming’s active coronavirus increased by eight on Monday from Friday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 332 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases between Friday and Monday.
At the same time, the state reported 269 new laboratory-confirmed and 71 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 979 active cases.
Laramie County continued to have the highest number of active cases at 199. Natrona had 95; Fremont had 92; Campbell 80; Uinta 69; Sweetwater 62; Albany 55; Teton 42; Converse 39; Carbon 36; Sheridan 31; Park 30; Lincoln 29; Platte 27; Sublette 22; Goshen 19; Weston 15; Big Horn 14; Crook 11; Johnson seven; Hot Springs had three, while Niobrara and Washakie had the fewest, at one each.
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 65,467 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 63,712 have recovered.
