Extension of Current Public Health Orders Continues Through August 15

Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon announced Tuesday that the State’s current public health orders will remain in place through August 15 as cases of COVID-19 continue to rise. Public Health Order Number 1 has been updated to provide more specific guidelines for school operations. This includes a continuation of the existing requirement that students wear face coverings in situations where six-feet of separation cannot be maintained. Specific exemptions are listed in the orders.

Gordon said that there were 64 laboratory confirmed cases on Tuesday, which is the highest single-day total in Wyoming since the pandemic began in March. He said that over the past two weeks, Wyoming has averaged 37 lab-confirmed cases of COVID-19 per day.
