The number of the novel coronavirus flu cases in Wyoming linked to the global outbreak that began in China now stands at 150 across 16 counties.
The only counties not reporting cases are Big Horn, Crook, Hot Springs, Lincoln, Niobrara, Platte and Weston. Carbon County has not seen any new COVID-19 cases since the three reported in mid-March. Two of those individuals have recovered. Six tests are still pending, according to the state health department.
Meanwhile, Wyoming courts are extending social distancing measures that begun last month that canceled many in-person proceedings. As a result, trials have been rescheduled. Video conferencing is being used for other court business.
Set to expire April 10th, the measures will continue through May, Chief Justice Michael K. Davis said Wednesday.
