The Wyoming Department of Health has confirmed 33 more deaths, due to COVID-related issues, bringing the total number of COVID-related deaths in Wyoming to 522.

Each of these 33 people had tested positive for the coronavirus, but may or may not have had underlying health issues as well.

Kim Deti, a spokesperson for the Wyoming Department of Health, said that "Deaths among Wyoming residents are added to the state’s total based on official death certificate information and location of permanent residence. If death certificates do not describe COVID-19 as either causing or contributing to a death, those deaths are not included in the WDH count."

Deti revealed that deaths occurred in Campbell County, Converse County, Fremont County, Goshen County, Johnson County, Laramie County, Natrona County, Park County, Sweetwater County, and Washakie County.
