Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon held a news conference this week to provide an update on the COVID-19 pandemic. Gordon said that a recent increase in positive cases in the state led to the decision to extend the public health orders another two weeks to July 15. 27 percent of lab-confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Wyoming have come in the last two weeks. The Governor said that there are three possible outcomes in regard to keeping businesses open.
Gordon said that he is confident that the citizens of Wyoming will exercise good judgement moving forward.
According to the Wyoming Department of Health, there were 30 confirmed cases of COVID-19 Thursday, and six probable cases. As of Thursday evening, there were eight current hospitalizations and a total of 1,233 confirmed cases, 317 probable cases, and 20 deaths.
