At the same time, the state reported 357 new laboratory-confirmed and 180 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 3,033 active cases for Thursday.
Twelve counties had more than 100 active cases, with four having more than 200.
Natrona County had 554; Laramie 430; Fremont 247; Sheridan 266; Campbell 173; Uinta 167; Sweetwater 161; Albany 141; Park 121; Goshen 117; Carbon 105; Lincoln 99; Weston 91; Washakie 63; Teton 60; Converse 54; Crook 45; Platte 44; Niobrara 33; Johnson 32; Big Horn 31; Sublette had 28, while Hot Springs reported 11 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 104,940 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 100,664 have recovered.
