Wyoming’s active coronavirus case count decreased by 61 on Tuesday.
The Wyoming Department of Health received reports of 407 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases on Tuesday.
At the same time, the state reported 166 new laboratory-confirmed and 236 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 3,064 active cases for Tuesday.
Fourteen counties had more than 100 active cases, with six having more than 200.
Natrona County had 541; Freemont 313; Laramie 291; Sheridan 241; Campbell 220; Goshen 159; Uinta 146; Park 143; Albany 137; Sweetwater 117; Washakie 111; Carbon 105; Lincoln 101; Converse 86; Teton 67; Platte 62; Weston 41; Sublette 37; Niobrara 34; Crook 33; Big Horn 32; Johnson had 29; while Hot Springs reported the fewest active cases, with 17.
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 98,567 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 94,367 have recovered.
