Wyoming’s active coronavirus case total increased by three on Tuesday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 117 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases Tuesday.
At the same time, the state reported 105 new laboratory-confirmed and 39 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 854 active cases for Tuesday.
Two counties had more than 100 active cases.
Laramie County had 196; Uinta 111; Natrona 93; Campbell 59; Teton 57; Fremont 51; Carbon 41; Sweetwater 39; Sheridan 36; Park 31; Albany 26; Weston 21; Goshen 17; Lincoln 12; Crook, Platte and Sublette ten; Johnson nine; Converse eight; Big Horn six; Washakie and 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 113,906 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 111,526 have recovered.
