Wyoming’s active coronavirus case total decreased by 313 over the weekend.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 797 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases between Friday and Monday.
At the same time, the state reported 355 new laboratory-confirmed and 129 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 1,795 active cases on Monday.
Six counties have more than 100 active cases, with two having more than 200.
Laramie County had 388; Natrona 275; Uinta 145; Albany 138; Sweetwater 103; Sheridan 102; Campbell 97; Fremont 89; Park 56; Johnson 48; Goshen 46; Platte 43; Carbon and Teton 42; Lincoln 34; Niobrara 28; Big Horn and Converse 23; Washakie 21; Crook 19; Sublette 17; Weston had 14, while Hot Springs reported two 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 109,802 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 106,660 have recovered.
