Governor Mark Gordon yesterday extended Wyoming’s public health orders through the end of the month.
The governor cited continuing cases of COVID-19 as the reason for extending restrictions for the eighth time since they were first enacted in mid-March of this year.
As of Tuesday morning, the Wyoming Department of Health reports 342 positive lab results for the virus since July 1st. On July 13th, the number of COVID-19 related hospitalizations was 17, the most since April 22.
Although testing has increased statewide, the percentage of positive results remains below three percent. The number of active cases has remained steady at around 415 for the last three weeks of July. Yesterday’s extension takes effect July 16th.
