JACKSON, Wyo. — New recommendations from the county health department strongly advise stay-at-home self-isolation, especially for older adults over age 65.
County Health Officer Dr. Travis Riddell issued the 4-point bulletin Tuesday, March 24, urging those over age 65 and people with high-risk medical conditions to “limit their movement and gathering.”
All others, including visitors to Teton County and second-home owners, are advised by Riddell to “return home immediately upon the issuance of this recommendation by the fastest and safest available means.” In addition, Riddell says, “Persons considering visiting Teton County, Wyoming should remain home.”
The recommendations also advised that residents of Jackson Hole who leave the immediate regional area should “limit their movement and gathering with other individuals who are not their immediate family” upon their return and consider “a period of self-isolation lasting at least 14 days.”
The immediate regional area is defined as all areas encompassed by Teton, Sublette, Lincoln County, and Fremont counties in Wyoming, as well as Bonneville and Teton counties in Idaho.
The recommendations are voluntary. They are not orders, and are also not enforceable under the law.
