JACKSON, Wyo. — Teton County Health Department (TCHD) announced this afternoon that the county has moved back into the High Community Level for COVID-19 and is recommending mask-wearing in public indoor locations.
The increase from the Medium Community Level is a result of new hospital admissions and an increase in confirmed COVID-19 cases per 100,000 population over the last 7 days.
As of June 23, the county has averaged 19.3 cases per day for the past seven days for a total of 135 cases reported. For the last 14 days, 19.3% of the tests taken at the Curative sites have received a positive result. Since June 18, St. John’s Health has admitted five patients with COVID-19.
Recommendations from the CDC during High Community Level include staying home when sick, testing for COVID-19, wearing a mask in public indoor settings, increasing ventilation, and following other recommended precautions to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 to family, friends, coworkers or neighbors.
“Individuals should stay home when they are sick and test. Testing is the only way to ensure you do not have COVID-19,” says TCHD.
