Wyoming’s active coronavirus decreased by 156 over the weekend.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 334 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases between Friday and Monday.
At the same time, the state reported 151 new laboratory-confirmed and 27 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 851 active cases. This is the first time since August that the state’s total number of active cases fell below 1,000. On Aug. 2, the active case tally was 979.
Two counties had more than 100 active cases.
Laramie County had 189; Uinta 105; Natrona 91; Fremont 67; Campbell 66; Teton 43; Park; 41; Carbon and Sweetwater 40; Sheridan 28; Albany 27; Weston 20; Platte 17; Goshen 16; Johnson and Sublette 11; Crook and Lincoln nine; Big Horn and Converse six; Washakie five; Hot Springs had three, while Niobrara 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 113,762 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 111,409 have recovered.
