CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Department of Health reduced the number of probable coronavirus cases in the state on Monday.

On Sunday, the department had listed 517 probable cases, which officials define as those who have been close contacts to others with lab-confirmed cases and who have symptoms consistent with the coronavirus.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports that on Monday, that figure dropped to 477.

Wyoming Department of Health spokesman Kim Deti says the decrease was simply a case of data cleanup, which involved going through all the probable cases to ensure they met the definition.
