Wyoming’s active coronavirus decreased by 651 over the weekend.
The Wyoming Department of Health said it received reports of 1,461 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases between Friday and Monday.
At the same time, the state reported 627 new laboratory-confirmed and 183 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 3,174 active cases for Monday.
This is the lowest number of active cases seen in Wyoming since Aug. 24, when the number of active cases was 2,949.
Eleven counties had more than 100 active cases, with five having more than 200. Natrona County continued to leave the state with 512 active cases; Campbell had 352; Laramie had 270; Fremont 260; Uinta 211; Park 196; Sheridan 190; Sweetwater 169; Washakie 135; Albany 133; Lincoln 110; Big Horn 95; Converse 89; Goshen 81; Sublette 74; Platte 68; Carbon 50; Teton 44; Johnson 36; Crook 34; Weston 32; Hot Springs had 20, while Niobrara reported the fewest active cases, with 13.
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 91,979 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 87,809 have recovered.
