Wyoming’s active coronavirus case tally decreased by 299 over the weekend.
The Wyoming Department of Health between Friday and Monday received reports of 1,840 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 1,354 new laboratory-confirmed and 187 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 3,907 active cases on Monday
Twelve counties have more than 100 active cases and 10 have more than 200. Natrona County had 625 active cases; Campbell had 434; Fremont 382; Laramie 330; Sweetwater 285; Uinta 242; Sheridan 222; Teton 212; Park 201; Lincoln 163; Albany 136; Converse 121; Big Horn 89; Crook 71; Goshen 64; Carbon 60; Sublette 55; Washakie 54; Johnson 40; Hot Springs 38; Niobrara 30; Platte had 27, and Weston County reported the fewest active cases, with 26.
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 85,499 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 80,674 have recovered.
