Wyoming’s active coronavirus case total decreased by 132 on Tuesday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 350 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases Tuesday.
At the same time, the state reported 170 new laboratory-confirmed cases and 70 new probable cases to leave Wyoming with 846 active cases.
Only one county reported more than 100 active cases — Laramie with 180.
Fremont and Natrona counties had 93; Sweetwater 77; Campbell 67; Teton 51; Sheridan 43; Albany 34; Park 30; Lincoln 29; Carbon 22; Goshen and Hot Springs 19; Washakie 17; Sublette 15; Uinta 11; Platte nine; Crook and Weston eight; Converse seven; Big Horn six; and Johnson had six, while Niobrara five reported 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 153,335 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 150,800 have recovered.
