Wyoming’s active coronavirus case total declined by 255 to end the week.
The Wyoming Department of Health received reports of 770 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases on Friday.
At the same time, the state reported 363 new laboratory-confirmed and 152 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 4,148 active cases for Friday.
Fifteen counties had more than 100 active cases and eight had more than 200. Natrona County had 695; Campbell had 462; Fremont 422; Laramie 319; Sweetwater 273; Uinta 256; Sheridan 214; Park 202; Albany 163; Lincoln 153; Teton 142; Big Horn 134; Converse 111; Washakie 106; Goshen 94; Sublette 82; Carbon 78; Crook 61; Johnson 50; Platte and Weston 35; Niobrara had 33, and Hot Springs had 28.
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 87,866 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 82,763 have recovered.
