Updated 7/30/21

On Friday, the Wyoming Department of Health (WDH) reported 172 new, probable and confirmed cases of COVID-19. The state's death toll stands at 776.

Right now, there are 971 active cases of the virus in Wyoming and the state's total COVID-19 case count is 65,127. Currently, there are 61 people hospitalized with the virus.

Roughly 63,300 people have recovered from the virus since March 2020. About 35 percent of Wyoming's population has been fully vaccinated. That's the fourth lowest vaccination rate in the country. 1,500 first shots of two-shot vaccines have been administered this week.

(Commercial labs are required to report positive test results to WDH; negative results are not reported consistently.)

Wyoming's Vaccine Plan

4/01/21

With federal authorization of the first vaccines meant to help prevent COVID-19, Wyoming is now administering the COVID-19 vaccine. On March 31, Governor Gordon announced that all Wyoming residents ages 16 and older are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Additional information on how to get vaccinated in each county is available from the Wyoming Department of Health and by calling 1-800-438-5795.

Each local county health department is in charge of the vaccine roll out for their communities. This means counties are moving at different speeds down the priority groups. To find more information about where your county is at with the vaccine roll out, go to your counties public health department's website.

​State Orders -- Updated March 16th, 2021

Starting March 16th, the statewide mask mandate (Public Health Order #4) and all restrictions on restaurants, bars, theatres and gyms (Public Health Order #1) were lifted. The face covering protocol for K-12 schools will however remain in place.

Limitations on personal gatherings and restrictions on outdoor events (Public Health Order #2) have been removed. However, for large indoor events for more than 500 people, may only be held at 50 percent of venue capacity with certain face mask protocols.

Wyoming Public Media would like to thank and recognize all health care workers, doctors, nurses caregivers, grocery store workers, truck drivers, and delivery workers during the global pandemic.

We also want to hear from you on how your community is responding. Tell us what you're seeing, hearing and experiencing on social media, use the hashtag #COVID19WY.
