GILLETTE, Wyo. — Wyoming health officials say Campbell County leads the state in reported flu cases this year.

According to a report by the Wyoming Health Department, the county had 402 confirmed cases of flu through the week of Jan. 6-12. Laramie County had 319, followed by Natrona County with 303, Sweetwater County with 264 and Fremont County with 200.

Wyoming has nearly 2,500 confirmed cases of flu and is on track to break the state record in the past decade of 3,109 set during a pandemic year in 2009-10.

Reggie McClinton, state's flu surveillance epidemiologist in Cheyenne, said he expects Wyoming to surpass 2,700 flu cases within the next week.
