Eleven More Coronavirus-Related Deaths Confirmed

Eleven more coronavirus-related deaths among Wyoming residents who tested positive for COVID-19 have been confirmed, according to the Wyoming Department of Health (WDH).

  • An older adult Sweetwater County man died last month. He was hospitalized in another state and had health conditions recognized as putting patients at higher risk of serious illness related to COVID-19.

Deaths among Wyoming residents are added to the state’s total based on official death certificate information and location of permanent residence. If death certificates do not describe COVID-19 as either causing or contributing to a death, those deaths are not included in the WDH count.

Among Wyoming residents, there have now been 682 coronavirus-related deaths, 46,190 lab-confirmed cases and 8,337 probable cases reported since the pandemic began.
