According to information from the Wyoming Department of Health, lab testing at the Wyoming Public Health Laboratory has identified the first known case of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the state. Dr. Alexia Harrist, state health officer and state epidemiologist with the Wyoming Department of Health, said the patient is an adult female from Sheridan County with some recent domestic travel history.

The Wyoming Department of Health is following up to learn more details about the person’s exposure risk and to identify and communicate with anyone who may have been in close contact with the patient. Known contacts will be monitored for symptoms and tested if needed. As is currently standard, the test result is considered to be a “presumptive positive” and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will conduct further testing for confirmation. Harrist noted the current risk of transmission in Wyoming remains low for most residents. Harrist added that symptoms reported with this disease are familiar: fever, cough and shortness of breath.

Governor Mark Gordon, in a news release issued by the WDH,  said that Wyoming has been planning for this situation for weeks and that state officials will continue coordinated efforts to address this threat. The Governor said that he pledges to work closely with our state agencies, federal partners and local officials to ensure we are implementing all the necessary steps to protect public health.

Experts believe COVID-19 spreads mostly between people who are in close contact and through respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes. People are thought to be most contagious when they are most ill with obvious symptoms. A person may also get COVID-19 by touching a surface that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose or eyes.

Recommended steps that can help avoid the spread of COVID-19 or similar illness include:

·         Avoid close contact with sick people.

·         While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible.

·         Stay home if sick.

·         Cover nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing. Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth. Germs spread this way.

·         Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs.

·         Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub with at least 60 percent alcohol.

“Travel recommendations and restrictions are also important,” Harrist said. The CDC currently recommends no nonessential travel to China, Iran, South Korea and Italy and no travel on cruise ships.

The CDC also says older adults and travelers with underlying health issues should consider avoiding situations with increased risk for transmission because they are at higher risk of severe COVID-19 illness. Examples include avoiding non-essential travel such as long plane trips and avoiding crowded places.

SCHOOL DISCTRIC #10 CLOSED TODAY DUE TO SNOW CONDITIONS

Scheduled to open in mid-September, The Sheridan Memorial Hospital Transitional Care Unit is an answer to a need identified by SMH leadership. 

A Transitional Care Unit (TCU) is a recuperative and supportive place to heal following an injury, surgery, or serious illness. From changes to one’s daily schedule to the adjustments necessary to return home – the care team of nurses, doctors, and therapists manage transitions and help patients regain a level of independence for a safe return home.

The TCU at SMH utilizes pre existing space that repurposed the second and third floors of the hospital for 20 private Transitional Care rooms, a communal dining room and space to aid in the recovery of most surgeries. 

While appearing on Sheridan Media’s Public Pulse program, Transitional Care & Welch Cancer Center Manager at Sheridan Memorial Hospital and registered nurse, Tommi Ritterbusch, told listeners that being able to recover and heal from surgeries close to home is a huge benefit to patients.

T. Ritterbusch 

Chief Development Officer at Sheridan Memorial Hospital and The Foundation Cody Sinclair told listeners that once the need for the TCU was identified, The Foundation and generous donors from the Sheridan County community made it happen.
