Wyoming’s active coronavirus case total increased by 92 on Tuesday.
The Wyoming Department of Health said it received reports of 401 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases on Tuesday.
At the same time, the state reported 341 new laboratory-confirmed and 287 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 3,266 active cases for Tuesday.
Twelve counties had more than 100 active cases and seven had more than 200. Natrona County had 539; Campbell 343; Laramie had 284; Fremont 261; Park 218; Uinta 209; Sheridan 204; Sweetwater 141; Washakie 139; Albany 137; Lincoln 119; Big Horn 105; Converse 99; Goshen 87; Sublette 78; Platte 63; Carbon 49; Johnson 42; Crook 40; Teton 39; Weston 34; and Hot Springs had 24, while Niobrara reported the fewest active cases, with 12.
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 92,517 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 88,210 have recovered.
