Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 294 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 143 new laboratory-confirmed and 154 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 2,414 active cases for Tuesday.
Six counties have more than 100 active cases and two have more than 200.
Natrona County had 464; Laramie 439; Fremont 183; Uinta 160; Campbell 152; Sheridan 134; Sweetwater 98; Albany 96; Park 80; Goshen 72; Lincoln 68; Carbon 59; Johnson 56; Teton 53; Weston 46; Platte and Washakie 45; Sublette 35; Crook 34; Converse 33; Big Horn 32; Niobrara had 22, while Hot Springs reported eight 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 106,287 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 102,575 have recovered.
