Wyoming’s active coronavirus case total decreased by 54 on Thursday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 479 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases Thursday.
At the same time, the state reported 336 new laboratory-confirmed and 89 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 2,267 active cases for Thursday.
Eight counties have more than 100 active cases, with two having more than 400.
Laramie County had 470; Natrona 427; Uinta 151; Sweetwater 128; Albany 127; Fremont Campbell 114; Sheridan 108; Park 71; Goshen 60; Johnson 57; Teton 56; Niobrara 52; Carbon and Lincoln 50; Sublette 42; Crook and Platte 38; Converse and Washakie 31; Big Horn 23; Weston had 21, 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 109,083 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 105,469 have recovered.
