Teton County now has 10 active coronavirus cases, the Teton County Health Department said.
The Wyoming Department of Health reported two new cases Tuesday, bringing the total case count to 113, including probable ones, with 104 recovered, but sometimes there is a delay in updating the state dashboard. Wyoming overall saw 18 new cases.
So far, none have been hospitalized at St. John's Health, according to data on the Jackson Hole community dashboard. That follows a trend around the country that has shown fewer hospitalizations and deaths in the recent uptick in cases.
The lower death and hospitalization rates coincide with more young people contracting the virus. That holds true in Teton County, where the majority of cases in the past couple of weeks have been patients in their 20s, 30s and 40s, said Janet Garland, nursing manager at the Teton County Health Department.
One heartening fact from the new cases is that many of them are "imported," meaning they aren't the result of community spread. Though it may not sound great to have the virus brought into the community by tourists or locals, that means it so far isn't traveling through the population very quickly.
