Wyoming’s active coronavirus increased by 94 over the weekend.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 479 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 444 new laboratory-confirmed and 129 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 1,536 active cases, an increase of 94 cases since Friday.
Of those cases, 556 were the Delta variant or variant “B.1.617.2.”
Four counties had more than 100 active cases as of Monday. Laramie County continued to lead the state at 364; Natrona had 1988; Campbell had 153; Uinta had 110; Teton 85; Sheridan 83; Fremont 78; Albany 62; Park and Sweetwater 61; Carbon 54; Converse 49; Lincoln 40; Big Horn 25; Platte 24; Goshen 20; Johnson 16; Weston 14; Hot Springs ten; Sublette and Washakie eight; Niobrara had seven, while Crook had the lowest number of active cases, with six.
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 67,026 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 64,704 have recovered.
