Wyoming’s active coronavirus case total increased by 67 over the weekend.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports from Saturday through Monday of 125 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 158 new laboratory-confirmed cases and 34 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 565 active cases Monday.
Laramie County had 121 cases, Natrona 74; Fremont 64; Sweetwater 41; Campbell 40; Albany 33; Goshen and Sheridan 27; Carbon 25; Teton 24; Washakie 13; Lincoln 12; Platte 11; Weston ten; Park nine; Hot Springs and Niobrara six; Sublette and Uinta five; Big Horn, Crook and Johnson had four, while Converse reported zero active cases.
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 155,101 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 152,818 have recovered.
