Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 1,104 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases from Friday to Monday.
At the same time, the state reported 800 new laboratory-confirmed and 205 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 1,228 active cases on Monday.
Three counties have more than 100 active cases and two have more than 200.
Teton County had 283 active cases; Laramie 254; Uinta 131; Albany 98; Natrona 95; Fremont 75; Campbell 58; Lincoln 41; Sweetwater 38; Sheridan 37; Park 34; Carbon 18; Platte 14; Crook and Weston eight; Converse and Goshen seven; Washakie six; Sublette had four, while Big Horn, Hot Springs, Johnson and Niobrara had three.
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 116,643 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 113,889 have recovered.
