Bars and restaurants in Wyoming can return to “normal operating hours” on January 9, the state's governor announced Saturday.
“Effective January 9, updated health orders permit bars and restaurants to resume onsite consumption from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.,” Governor Mark Gordon said in a press release, Saturday.
The decision was made after Covid-19 hospitalizations decreased across the state.
Gyms are also allowed to increase the number of attendees from 10 to 25, according to the statement.
“I also want to express my gratitude to those businesses that adapted to these temporary measures. These have not been easy times for anyone," Gordon said.
"We are not out of the woods yet, but continued personal safety measures while the vaccine is being distributed will enable our state’s schools and businesses to continue to remain open."
Wyoming has 38,163 confirmed Covid-19 cases and 438 deaths, according to the state’s Department of Health.
