(November 13, 2020) — Thursday, Nov. 12, marked the third time the Wyoming Department of Health (WDH) has recorded over 900 new lab-confirmed cases of COVID-19 in one day. Yesterday’s report showed 924 new cases of the virus in the state after only 76 were reported on Wednesday, Veterans Day. The large difference in the Wednesday and Thursday count was likely due to holiday work schedules. The state’s record high one-day total is 1,131 new cases, which occurred on Tuesday, Nov. 10.

Laramie County led the state in new cases Thursday with 198, followed by Campbell County’s 147, Natrona County’s 140, and Albany County’s 77.
