Casper-Natrona County Health Department (CNCHD) officials said the county’s newest confirmed COVID-19 case is a woman in her 60s. The case is not connected to any previous cases in the county and officials are not sure how she got the virus.
They announced the newest case Sunday.
CNCHD staff are also now doing remote testing at 13 high-risk sites including nursing homes and assisted living facilities.
Casper Police Department spokesperson Rebekah Ladd said first responders and medical personnel need more personal protective equipment. She asked for donations including face shields, masks, gowns and nitrile gloves.
She also asked for people to donate empty hand sanitizer bottles to be refilled and redistributed.
People can drop off their donations at the Mills Police Department at 4800 W. Yellowstone Hwy.
Natrona County School District spokesperson Tanya Southerland also announced the district has locked all school playgrounds to keep the virus from spreading.
