Wyoming’s active coronavirus decreased by 301 over the weekend.
The Wyoming Department of Health received reports of 1,210 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases.
At the same time, the state reported 726 new laboratory-confirmed and 183 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 3,084 active cases on Monday.
Twelve counties had more than 100 active cases, with six having more than 200. Natrona County had 547; Freemont 341; Laramie 329; Sheridan 233; Campbell 201; Uinta 69; Goshen 168; Sweetwater 152; Carbon 150; Park 141; Albany 124; Lincoln 85; Teton 79; Washakie 78; Platte and Weston 43; Converse 40; Sublette 34; Crook 33; Big Horn 31; Johnson 28; Niobrara had 21, while Hot Springs reported the fewest active cases, with 14.
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 101,083 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 96,850 have recovered.
