Wyoming’s active coronavirus case total decreased by 48 on Tuesday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports Tuesday of 309 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 193 new laboratory-confirmed and 117 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 2,102 active cases for Tuesday.
Seven counties have more than 100 active cases, with two having more than 400. Laramie County had 415; Natrona 410; Uinta 153; Albany and Fremont 128; Campbell 118; Sweetwater 112; Sheridan 84; Park 61; Sublette 56; Lincoln 52; Teton 48; Goshen 47; Johnson 46; Carbon and Niobrara 36; Platte 33; Big Horn 31; Washakie 29; Converse and Crook 27; Weston had 21, while Hot Springs reported four 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 108,413 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 104,964 have recovered.
