Travel-related health recommendations easing Friday

JACKSON, Wyo. — Teton District Health Officer, Travis Riddell, MD, today announced that health recommendations regarding travel in and out of Teton County will be lifted tomorrow.

Two County Public Health Recommendations related to travel will be revoked on May 8.

  • Teton County Recommendation #6 asks that residents who travel outside a designated region (Teton County, Idaho and Bonneville County, Idaho) for reasons other than essential activities, or any visitors to Teton County, should self-quarantine for 14 days.
  • Teton County Recommendation #4 encourages persons considering visiting Teton County, Wyoming should remain home, and non-resident homeowners are strongly encouraged to leave or to not travel to Teton County, Wyoming.

Dr. Riddell’s announcement follows a similar statement made by Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon, who announced this afternoon he will not be extending a Statewide Directive related to travel when it expires on May 8.

Teton County Health Department is, however, reminding residents that even though the Statewide Directive and County Public Health Recommendations have been revoked, residents should still limit their travel and self-monitor their symptoms for 14 days upon arrival back to the state.

Teton County Public Health Recommendation #7 will remain in place. It asks all people in Teton County to wear cloth face coverings in public settings where other physical distancing measures may be difficult to maintain, such as grocery stores, pharmacies, and crowded outdoor spaces like sidewalks and work places.
