Wyoming’s active coronavirus increased by 245 on Wednesday from Tuesday. 

Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of four recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases. 

At the same time, the state reported 187 new laboratory-confirmed and 62 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 1,303 active cases.

This is the largest single-day increase since January 18, when active cases increased by 257.

Four counties now have 100 or more active cases. Laramie County continues to have the state’s highest active case number at 274. Natrona had 144; Campbell had 117; Fremont had 100; Uinta 97; Sweetwater 75; Albany 59; Teton 57; Sheridan 54; Converse 52; Carbon 51; Park 48; Lincoln 41; Platte 30; Goshen 23; Sublette 20; Big Horn 15; Crook and Johnson 10; Niobrara and Weston nine; Washakie had five, while Hot springs had the fewest active cases, with three.

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 65,953 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. 

Of those, 63,864 have recovered.
