Wyoming’s active coronavirus count decreased by 39 on Thursday from Wednesday.
The Wyoming Department of Health received reports Thursday of 676 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 528 new laboratory-confirmed and 109 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 3,995 active cases for Thursday.
Fourteen counties had more than 100 active cases and seven had more than 200. Natrona County had 697; Campbell 418; Fremont 387; Laramie 303; Sweetwater 266; Park and Sheridan 209; Uinta 180; Albany 159; Washakie 152; Lincoln 149; Converse 120; Big Horn 104; Sublette 102; Goshen 99; Teton 85; Carbon 84; Platte 68; Crook 59; Johnson 47; Weston 41; Niobrara had 32, while Hot Springs 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 90,602 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 85,611 have recovered.
