Wyoming’s active coronavirus case count decreased by 87 on Tuesday from Monday.
The Wyoming Department of Health received reports Tuesday of 603 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 306 new laboratory-confirmed and 247 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 3,820 active cases for Tuesday.
Twelve counties had more than 100 active cases and seven had more than 200.
Natrona County had 622, Campbell 431; Fremont 356; Laramie 328; Uinta 259; Sweetwater 243; Sheridan 222; Park 192; Lincoln 169; Teton 145; Albany 143; Converse 136; Big Horn 97; Crook 69; Goshen 67; Washakie 66; Carbon 60; Sublette 57; Johnson 43; Niobrara 33; Platte 29; Hot Springs had 28, and Weston County had 25.
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 86,052 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 81,277 have recovered.
