Teton County mask order extended with changes

JACKSON, Wyo. — Teton County’s mask order which has been in place since July 2020 has undergone some changes for the month of December to include more instances when masks are required and mirror mask orders that are now in place in other Counties across Wyoming.

This version of Teton County’s mask order will be in place starting December 1, 2020, through January 4, 2021.

The biggest changes to the mask order are:

  • People must wear a mask in any business, not just in retail or commercial settings. A business is defined as any type of business entity (including non-profits) that employee or engages workers or volunteers. This includes office spaces where the public does not normally enter.
  • Masks are required in all Town of Jackson and Teton County buildings that are open to the public.
  • Masks are to remain on in all office settings when you are within 6-feet of your co-workers.
  • Individuals who are 12 and under are exempt from the order.

Teton District Health Officer, Travis Riddell, MD, stated, “We are excited that this new extension of the mask order is more robust and includes more situations our community members and workers may find themselves. We are hoping that this version of the mask order will assist in stopping transmission for COVID-19 in workplaces and in other settings outside of households.”
