Statewide public health orders continued through May 16

WYOMING — Wyoming’s two remaining COVID-19 statewide public health orders are being continued again for two more weeks, announced the Wyoming Department of Health (WDH), today April 28.

The two orders are the continuation of statewide public health order regarding child care facilities, K-12 schools, colleges, universities, and trade schools and the continuation of public health order regarding large indoor events. 

The orders go into effect May 1 and remain through May 16.

Mask use and physical distancing requirements related to educational institutions remain. Indoor events of more than 500 people may be held at 50 percent of venue capacity with specific mask protocols for large indoor events.

WDH recommends masks in indoor public places when common-sense physical distancing cannot be maintained among people who don’t live in the same household.

According to the department, estimates show nearly 25 percent of Wyoming’s population has been fully vaccinated so far, including 32 percent of adults 18 and older and more than 55 percent of adults 65 and older.

Teton County is currently at yellow, or low, risk level for COVID-19. About 50% of the adult population in Teton County has been fully vaccinated, as of April 23.
