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


Among Wyoming residents, there have now been 77 coronavirus-related deaths, 9,783 lab-confirmed cases and 1,694 probable cases reported since the pandemic began.
