Wyoming’s active coronavirus case total increased by 36 to end the week.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 32 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases between Tuesday and Friday.
At the same time, the state reported 56 new laboratory-confirmed and 12 new probable cases for an active case total of 113 on Friday.
Laramie County had 28 cases, Teton 16; Albany 12; Sweetwater 11; Natrona 10; Campbell nine; Washakie seven; Fremont six; Goshen four; Sheridan three; Park and Weston two; Platte, Sublette and Uinta one, and Big Horn, Carbon, Converse, Crook, Hot Springs, Johnson, Lincoln and Niobrara all 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 156,056 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 154,161 have recovered.
