Wyoming’s active coronavirus case tally increased by 36 on Tuesday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 148 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 156 new laboratory-confirmed and 109 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 1,234 active cases for Tuesday.
Five counties had 100 or more active cases, with one having more than 200.
Laramie County had 231; Natrona 178; Uinta 168; Campbell 115; Sheridan 100; Sweetwater 61; Albany 60; Fremont 32; Washakie 30; Teton and Johnson 28; Platte, Park and Carbon 27; Lincoln 24; Sublette and Niobrara 17; Converse 16; Goshen and Big Horn 15; Crook 11; Weston had six, 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 111,089 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 108,427 have recovered.
