Wyoming’s active coronavirus case total decreased by 254 on Friday to end the week.
Wednesday Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 1,038 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 594 new laboratory-confirmed and 191 new probable cases between Wednesday and Friday, leaving Wyoming with 2,532 active cases for Friday.
Eight counties had more than 100 active cases, with two having more than 200.
Laramie County had 501; Natrona 479; Fremont 190; Sweetwater 154; Albany and Campbell 137; Uinta 131; Sheridan 121; Park 93; Goshen 60; Teton 59; Sublette 58; Lincoln 55; Johnson 52; Washakie 49; Carbon and Platte 45; Niobrara 41; Crook 36; Converse 32; Big Horn 29; Weston had 23, while Hot Springs reported five 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 107,483 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 103,653 have recovered.
