Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon held a media conference Thursday to provide an update on the recent spike in cases of COVID-19 in the state. Wednesday, the number of laboratory confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Wyoming increased by 137, which is the largest single day increase of new cases since the pandemic began in March. There were an additional 120 confirmed cases reported by the Wyoming Department of Health on Thursday, bringing the total number of active cases in the state to 864. Gordon said that the number of new cases over the past 14 days has increased significantly as well.
Gordon said there are a number of different factors that have led to the increase in cases.
Gordon also said they are looking at the possibility of updating the public health orders to expand indoor seating capacity at restaurants. We’ll have more on that for you in a future story.
