The number of active coronavirus cases in Wyoming fell by 176 on Friday to end the week.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 554 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 276 new laboratory-confirmed and 102 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 2,857 active cases for Friday.
Nine counties now have more than 100 active cases, with four having more than 200.
Natrona County had 536 Laramie 453; Fremont 238; Sheridan 200; Uinta 183; Campbell 171; Albany 142; Sweetwater 137; Park 97; Goshen 95; Lincoln 89; Carbon 83; Washakie 63; Weston 54; Platte 49; Teton 46; Converse 43; Crook 40 Johnson 39; Big Horn 34; Sublette 30; Niobrara 23 had 28, while Hot Springs reported 12 active cases.
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 105,318 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 101,327 have recovered.
