Wyoming’s active coronavirus case total decreased by 36 on Tuesday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 285 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases Tuesday.
At the same time, the state reported 150 new laboratory-confirmed and 99 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 1,759 active cases for Tuesday.
Six counties have more than 100 active cases, with two having more than 200.
Laramie County had 375; Natrona 258; Uinta 149; Albany 126; Sheridan 118; Campbell 111; Sweetwater 97; Fremont 74; Park 50; Goshen and Platte 48; Carbon 45; Teton 43; Johnson 42; Lincoln 36; Niobrara and Washakie 28; Big Horn and Converse 19; Crook and Sublette 16; Weston had 11, 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 110,051 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 106,945 have recovered.
