Wyoming’s active coronavirus case total decreased by 251 on Tuesday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 311 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases Tuesday.
At the same time, the state reported 56 new laboratory-confirmed and 27 new probable cases on Tuesday, bringing the state’s active case total to 314.
Laramie had 62 cases, Fremont 36; Natrona 34; Teton 25; Sweetwater 20; Campbell 19; Albany 18; Sheridan 16; Goshen 15; Carbon 14; Platte nine; Uinta eight; Hot Springs and Sublette six; Lincoln five; Big Horn and Crook four; Park, Washakie and Weston three; Niobrara had two, while Converse and Johnson reported one.
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 155,184 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 153,129 have recovered.
