Wyoming’s active coronavirus case total decreased by 763 over the weekend.
Wyoming Department of Health figures released for the first time since Wednesday showed that the department received reports of 1,323 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases between Wednesday and Monday.
At the same time, the state reported 432 new laboratory-confirmed and 128 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 1,198 active cases for Monday.
Four counties have more than 100 active cases, with only one having 200. Laramie County had 246; Uinta 158; Natrona 156; Campbell 109; Sheridan 97; Albany 72; Sweetwater 60; Fremont 37; Park 30; Washakie 28; Carbon 27; Platte 26; Goshen 23; Teton 21; Johnson 19; Lincoln 18; Niobrara 17; Sublette 15; Big Horn 13; Crook 10; Converse eight; and Weston had seven, while Hot Springs reported one active case.
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 110,824 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 108,279 have recovered.
