Sheridan County Residents: all Sheridan County residents, even those who may be outside of Sheridan County at the time of illness.

Nonresidents in Sheridan County: these numbers represent the population of people who are in Sheridan County but are not residents. If an individual is tested in Sheridan County, but lives outside of the county, they are counted in the nonresident total laboratory confirmed cases. Nonresident active confirmed cases represents nonresidents currently in Sheridan County. When a nonresident goes home, their case is transferred to their local Public Health Office.

Laboratory Confirmed Case: the total number of residents or nonresidents tested for COVID-19 and a laboratory has confirmed the presence of COVID-19. This includes symptomatic and asymptomatic cases, as well as active and complete cases.

Active Confirmed Cases: the number of Sheridan County residents or nonresidents who have been tested for COVID-19 and the laboratory has confirmed the COVID-19 virus is present. Active cases are currently being monitored by public health staff and include both symptomatic and asymptomatic cases.

Active Probable Cases: the number of people who have been in contact with a lab-confirmed positive COVID-19 person and are currently experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. These cases are labeled probable until laboratory testing is completed.

Recovered: the total number of laboratory-confirmed Sheridan County residents who are no longer symptomatic. We do not report recovered nonresidents, as we transfer cases to their home county once the resident is no longer in Sheridan County.

Deaths: For Sheridan County, this number represents residents who have passed away due to COVID-19 and includes deaths that occur outside of the county. For nonresidents, the number represents nonresident deaths that occur in Sheridan County.

Please note: Any number provided is a snapshot in time. As Wyoming Department of Health and Sheridan County Public Health staff are continually monitoring and updating information in our shared data system, our numbers change. Discrepancies in reported numbers from each agency are most likely attributed to the difference in time the data was referenced.
