JACKSON, Wyo. — Seventeen more coronavirus-related deaths among Wyoming residents who had tested positive for COVID-19 have been confirmed, according to the Wyoming Department of Health (WDH).

Deaths among Wyoming residents are added to the state’s coronavirus-related death total based on official death certificate information. If death certificates do not describe COVID-19 as either causing or contributing to a person’s death, those deaths are not included in Wyoming’s count. Death certificate confirmation timing is inconsistent.

County health doctors are asking Wyoming Governor Gordon to pass a statewide mask mandate, but that doesn’t seem to be Gordon’s plan, at least not right now.

In Teton County, there are currently 175 active cases, bringing the case total to 1,122.
