Wyoming’s active coronavirus increased by 281 on Tuesday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports Tuesday of 419 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 577 new laboratory-confirmed and 169 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 1,509 active cases.
Five counties had more than 100 active cases and one had more than 300.
Teton County had 343; Laramie 298; Albany 146; Uinta 135; Natrona 114; Fremont 81; Campbell 75; Sweetwater 58; Sheridan 51; Lincoln 41; Park 40; Carbon 27; Goshen 19; Platte 14; Sublette 11; Crook and Johnson ten; Converse nine; Washakie seven; Hot Springs six; Big Horn and Niobrara had five while Weston had four.
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 117,389 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 114,308 have recovered.
