Wyoming’s active coronavirus case total decreased by 259 over the weekend.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 474 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases between Friday and Monday. At the same time, the state reported 161 new laboratory-confirmed and 54 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 1,022 active cases for Monday.
Three counties had more than 100 active cases and one had more than 200. Laramie County had 249; Natrona 122; Uinta 119; Campbell 82; Carbon 68; Fremont 63; Sweetwater 55; Park 53; Teton 31; Weston 24; Albany 23; Sheridan 22; Goshen 20; Sublette 17; Lincoln 15; Platte 14; Converse and Johnson nine; Big Horn and Washakie seven; Crook and Hot Springs had five, while Niobrara 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 113,077 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 110,583 have recovered.
