Governor Gordon Extends Quarantine Directive, Announces Campground Openings

Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon announced Wednesday that he has extended through May 8, his directive requiring any individual coming to Wyoming from another state or country for a non-work-related purpose, to immediately self-quarantine for 14 days.

Public health conditions permitting, the Governor said in a news release that he anticipates the directive to expire at that time, and that his decision to let it expire on May 8 was made after speaking with county commissioners throughout the state and in recognition of existing guidance in place in neighboring states. Gordon noted that Colorado continues to discourage non-essential travel and Montana’s 14-day self-quarantine directive remains in place.

Governor Gordon also announced that camping at Wyoming State Parks will begin to open on May 15 for Wyoming residents, and that camping will be by reservation only. He said that additional details on modified operations at Wyoming State Parks will be announced soon.


  1. We live in Sheridan and are scheduled to pick up our camper in Billings MT on the 8th of May, will we have to self quarintine for 14 days when we return to Sheridan

  2. I think the 14 day quarantine applies to out-of-state residents only. Maybe call the local health dept. to check.

  3. Putting restrictions on out-of-state visitors seems prudent. We don’t want a flood of foreigners. We should, however, liberate the free citizens of Wyoming, ASAP! Any further extensions of Executive Orders should not happen. We are no longer in an “emergency” situation. Laws are made by the legislature, NOT the governor. Re-convene the people’s representatives for any further “flu-laws.”
    As was once said, “Let my People Go.”
