Public health orders in Wyoming will be extended through July 31 due to the increasing number of Covid-19 case, Gov. Mark Gordon announced in a statement today.
The state announced 39 new lab-confirmed cases and three new probable cases today. The state has reported a total of 1,545 lab-confirmed positive cases of Covid-19, 359 probable cases and 21 deaths.
For the past two weeks, Wyoming has had an average of 27 lab-confirmed cases of Covid-19 with 342 new cases that have been confirmed since July 1.
“I’m disappointed again that we continue to see case numbers rise,” Gordon said. “Wyoming residents only need to look at what Texas, Florida and Arizona are experiencing to see how much damage being careless, not wearing a mask, and failing to social distance can cause to our state’s economy, our citizens' health and our healthcare system. I am encouraged to see many of our businesses taking this responsibility seriously and both requiring staff and urging customers to wear face coverings.”
