Editor’s Note: This is a map of the active coronavirus cases in each county across Wyoming. The number of active cases is determined by subtracting the total number of recoveries seen since the illness first reached Wyoming in mid-March from the total number of confirmed and probable cases diagnosed during the same time period and taking into account deaths related to the disease.
The total number of active coronavirus cases in the state climbed to 611 on Sunday as the total number of confirmed cases seen in Wyoming since the disease was first detected here grew to 2,333.
The Wyoming Department of Health, in its daily coronavirus update, said 13 counties reported 36 new confirmed cases, while the number of probable cases went up by three to total 475.
New confirmed cases were reported Sunday in Albany, Big Horn, Campbell, Fremont, Goshen, Laramie, Lincoln, Natrona, Sheridan, Sublette, Sweetwater, Teton and Uinta counties. Laramie County saw the biggest increase with seven new cases.
At the same time, 20 recoveries were noted across the state Sunday to bring the total number of people who have recovered from laboratory-confirmed and probable cases to 2,173.
The numbers boosted the total of active cases seen in the state to 611, an increase of 22 from Saturday.
Laramie County had 129 cases; Fremont had 99; Teton had 63; Carbon had 50; Uinta had 45; Park had 43; Albany had 33; Sweetwater had 30; Natrona had 25; Lincoln and Sheridan had 24; Campbell had 18; Sublette had 11; Goshen had five; Big Horn and Washakie had four; Converse had two, and Hot Springs and Weston had one.
Crook, Johnson, Niobrara and Platte counties had no 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, 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 active cases were divided among 510 people with confirmed cases and 101 with probable cases.
Recoveries since the pandemic began have been divided among 1,799 people with confirmed cases and 374 with probable cases.
Probable cases are defined as those where a patient has coronavirus symptoms and has been in contact with a person with a confirmed case, but has not been tested for the illness.
