At the same time, the state reported 316 new laboratory-confirmed cases and 87 new probable cases, leaving the state with 1,797 active cases for Thursday.
Only one county had more than 300 active cases and five had more than 100.

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 152,206 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 148,742 have recovered.
