Four Campbell County residents are among the 25 additional Wyomingites to have died of complications related to COVID-19, according to a Jan. 26 release from the Wyoming Department of Health (WDH).
This brings the total number of statewide deaths to 596, including 53 residents from Campbell County.
The four Campbell County men and women who died were classified as adults or older adults who had been either 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 Big Horn, Carbon, Fremont, Laramie, Natrona, Park, Platte, Sheridan, Sweetwater, and Teton 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 43,651 lab-confirmed cases in the state since the onset of the pandemic with an additional 7,501 probables, per WDH data. Of those, 42,079 lab-confirmed cases and 7,189 probables have since recovered.
