Seven Campbell County residents are among the 33 more Wyomingites who have died of complications related to COVID-19, according to a Jan. 12 release from the Wyoming Department of Health (WDH).
This brings the total number of statewide deaths to 522, including 45 residents from Campbell County.
The Campbell County residents are classified as adults or older adult men and women. An older adult man and woman were residents at the Legacy Living and Rehabilitation Center and two more older adults had been hospitalized. Three adult and older adult males had been hospitalized in other states.
The other Wyoming residents were likewise adults, or older adults, who were residents of long-term care facilities or hospitalized throughout Converse, Fremont, Goshen, Laramie, Natrona, Park, Sweetwater, Uinta, and Washakie counties.
Deaths among Wyoming residents are determined based on official death certificate information, WDH said, adding that if a death certificate does not describe COVID-19 as either causing or contributing to a person’s death, those deaths are not included in Wyoming’s count.
As of Tuesday afternoon, there have been 41,116 lab-confirmed cases in the state with an additional 6,956 probables, per WDH data, since the onset of the pandemic. Of those, 38,721 lab-confirmed cases and 6,502 probables have since recovered.
In Campbell County, there are currently 95 active lab-confirmed cases, eight of which were reported in the last 24 hours. To date, there have been 3,981 lab-confirmed cases, 418 probables, and 4,240 recoveries.
