Wyoming’s active coronavirus case total decreased by 441 over the weekend.
The Wyoming Department of Health received reports of 1,510 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases between Friday and Monday.
At the same time, the state reported 424 new laboratory-confirmed and 215 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 3,707 active cases for Friday. Twelve counties have more than 100 active cases, with seven having more than 200.
Natrona County continued to have the highest number of active cases Monday with 603. Campbell had 373; Fremont had 326; Laramie had 298; Uinta 296; Sweetwater 284; Park 214; Sheridan 166; Albany and Teton 145; Lincoln 132; Converse 97; Big Horn 95; Washakie 94; Sublette 81; Goshen 72; Carbon 67; Crook 53; Platte 46; Johnson 43; Weston 35; Niobrara had 27, and Hot Springs had 15.
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 88,935 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 84,273 have recovered.
