Wyoming saw 27 new coronavirus cases overnight, with the biggest spike — 10 — coming in Uinta County.

Laramie County reports five new cases, while Sweetwater County has three and Fremont and Natrona counties each have two. Albany, Converse, Park, Platte, Sublette and Teton counties each have one new case. Lincoln County is down by one case.

Health officials in Uinta County have attributed the outbreak there — the county now has a total of 120 lab-confirmed and 28 probable cases after starting June with just nine confirmed cases — to people not practicing social distancing during parties and gatherings over the Memorial Day weekend holiday or the following weekend.

Teton County's current COVID-19 total is 111 (80 lab-confirmed and 31 probable) cases, with 11 active and 100 recovered. One Teton County resident has died due to the virus.

Statewide, Wyoming has reported 974 lab-confirmed and 256 probable cases, which include 20 COVID-19 related deaths.
