Wyoming’s active coronavirus remained unchanged Tuesday from Monday.
Wyoming Department of Health figures showed that the department received reports of 88 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 76 new laboratory-confirmed and 21 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 557 active cases, the same as the total seen Monday.
Laramie County continued to lead the state in active cases with 266; Sweetwater had 42; Natrona 31; Teton 24; Carbon and Lincoln 22; Uinta 20; Albany and Campbell 19; Fremont 18; Converse 16; Platte 11; Sublette 10; Park eight; Crook five; Hot Springs, Sheridan and Weston four; Big Horn, Goshen and Johnson three; Washakie two, and Niobrara County had 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 63,235 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020.
Of those, 61,918 have recovered.
