Additionally, there were 893 new cases added to the now 6,674 lab-confirmed instances of influenza, which is the highest since those numbers were tracked, which started during the 2004-2005 season.
Overall, fewer people are going to see a doctor for the flu than during the height of the season in the beginning of February. "Having said that, the incidents of flu right now even having gone down is still higher than it was at its peak past year".
Meanwhile, information reported by doctor's offices and hospitals indicated the number of new cases continued declining.
Wyoming remains one of several states with high and widespread flu activity, according to Kim Deti, spokeswoman for the Department of Health.
Since early January, cases of influenza A have been declining, while cases of influenza B have been rising, which often happens in the tail end of the flu season, according to the Centers for Disease Control.
The number of weekly flu-related deaths has also been falling, with 19 during the most recent week, and none of them involving a child. So far this season, health officials said 114 children nationwide have died from the flu.
The Garvin County Health Department is still encouraging folks to get a flu shot, which right now is being offered at no cost to recipients.
While the Influenza B virus can be better for some people because the vaccine is more effective, Simpson said the virus is more risky for men over the age of 50 because it is associated with an onset of heart attacks.
The Division of Public Health says people can still get their flu shots.
Last year, the flu season in Wyoming peaked at the end of January.
