Four Campbell County residents are among the 28 additional Wyomingites who have died of complications related to COVID-19, according to a Jan. 19 release from the Wyoming Department of Health (WDH).
This brings the total number of statewide deaths to 550, including 49 residents from Campbell County.
The four Campbell County men and women are classified as adults or older adults who had been hospitalized or residents at long-term care facilities.
The other Wyoming residents were likewise adults, or older adults, who were residents of long-term care facilities or hospitalized throughout Carbon, Fremont, Goshen, Laramie, Natrona, Park, Platte, Sheridan, Sweetwater, Teton, 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 42,638 lab-confirmed cases in the state with an additional 7,284 probables, per WDH data, since the onset of the pandemic. Of those, 40,732 lab-confirmed cases and 6,851 probables have since recovered.
In Campbell County, there are currently 75 active lab-confirmed cases, eight of which were reported in the last 24 hours. To date, there have been 4,077 lab-confirmed cases, 433 probables, and 4,372 recoveries.
