Wyoming’s active coronavirus decreased by 391 over the weekend.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 1,063 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases between Friday and Monday.
At the same time, the state reported 510 new laboratory-confirmed cases and 162 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 2,466 active cases for Monday.
Eight counties have more than 100 active cases, with two having more than 200. Laramie County had 462; Natrona had 428; Uinta 195; Fremont 192; Campbell 147; Sheridan 145; Sweetwater 113; Albany 109; Goshen 77; Lincoln 73; Park 70; Carbon 63; Platte 50; Washakie 48; Johnson and Weston 47; Teton 46; Crook 36; Converse 33; Sublette 31; Big Horn 27; Niobrara had 18, while Hot Springs reported nine 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 105,990 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 102,281 have recovered.
