Wyoming’s active coronavirus case total decreased by 415 over the weekend.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 853 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 403 new laboratory-confirmed cases and 64 new probable cases, leaving the state with 539 active cases on Tuesday
Laramie County had 96 cases, Natrona 69; Fremont 57; Teton 52; Campbell 51; Sweetwater 39; Sheridan 24; Park and Washakie 20; Carbon 18; Lincoln 17; Albany 15; Platte 12; Uinta 10; Big Horn and Sublette seven; Goshen six; Crook, Johnson and Weston four; Hot Springs three, while Converse and Niobrara reported two.
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 154,549 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 152,292 have recovered.
