Wyoming’s current public health orders will remain in place through Aug. 15 as cases of COVID-19 continue to rise, including the largest number of reported new lab-confirmed cases in one day on Tuesday, Gov. Mark Gordon said in a news release.
“It is important for all of us to remain vigilant as we continue to see case numbers increase statewide,” Gordon said.
“We are approaching a critical time for our state’s economy,” he said. “So far, Wyoming has been able to keep our businesses open and our citizens safe. That’s good for our economy and good for the health of our people.”
However, business expansion is fragile and it depends of each state resident doing their part including practicing social distancing and wearing face masks to slow the prevention of the coronavirus, Gordon said.
The frequency of reported new lab-confirmed cases has risen steadily over the past month.
From June 28 through July 12, Wyoming averaged 28 new lab-confirmed cases of COVID-19 per day, and there were a total of new 385 lab-confirmed cases reported
