Two more weeks: Governor Mark Gordon announced Monday that public health orders related to concerns over the novel coronavirus will remain in place across Wyoming through July 15.
Yesterday’s announcement did not include any new easing of the restrictions. Orders remain in place unchanged.
In a written statement, the governor cited a recent increase in cases as a reason for the extension. Since the current orders went into effect on June 15, the Wyoming Department of Health reports 288 new confirmed cases.
The continuing orders allow gatherings up to 50 persons in a confined space to occur without restrictions and permit events of up to 250 persons with social distancing and increased sanitization measures in place.
Church-services services and funeral homes will continue to be permitted to operate without restrictions, with appropriate social distancing encouraged.
All public health restrictions that apply to restaurants, bars, gyms and performance spaces will remain in place.
As of June 30, Wyoming has recorded 1,151 lab-confirmed positive cases of COVID-19, 299 probable cases and 20 deaths.
