The deaths of nine more Wyoming residents have been tied to the coronavirus, the Wyoming Department of Health announced Tuesday.

The department said the deaths, which occurred between late January and March, brought the total number of Wyoming residents whose deaths have been linked to the illness in the past year to 691.

All of the victims were age 65 or older, the department said.

The residents who died included a Johnson County man.

Other victims included a Campbell County man, a Carbon County man, a Converse County woman, a Laramie County woman, a Lincoln County man and a Park County man and woman.

The announcement Tuesday came as the state recorded another decline in active coronavirus cases in the state, down four from Monday to total 454.
