Wyoming’s active coronavirus case total decreased by 19 on Tuesday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 144 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 114 new laboratory-confirmed and 55 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 1,346 active cases for Tuesday.
Four counties had more than 100 active cases, with two having more than 200.
Laramie County had 312; Natrona 202; Campbell 124; Uinta 118; Carbon 98; Sheridan 64; Fremont and Sweetwater 62; Park 52; Albany 43; Teton 38; Lincoln 27; Goshen 23; Platte 22; Converse 18; Johnson 16; Sublette 15; Big Horn 13; Weston 12; Crook 11; Washakie seven; Niobrara had four, while Hot Springs reported three 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 112,368 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 109,550 have recovered.
