Wyoming’s active coronavirus case total increased by 78 to start the week Monday.
The Wyoming Department of Health received reports during the weekend of 1,211 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 1,042 new laboratory-confirmed and 247 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 3,512 active cases for Monday.
Twelve counties are over 100 active cases, with six being over 200. Natrona County increased 33, to 572; Laramie decreased 44, to 380; Uinta increased 23, to 341; Campbell had 302; Fremont 264; Teton 194; Sheridan 182; Albany 139; Park 121; Lincoln 108; Hot Springs 104; Converse 96; Platte 86; Goshen 73; Johnson 63; Carbon 60; Washakie 35; Weston 33; Crook 31; Big Horn 30; Sublette had 20, while Niobrara reported 14 active cases. No county reported zero active cases for Monday.
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 74,756 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 70,409 have recovered.
