CASPER, Wyo. — The Wyoming Department of Health said on Monday, March 16 that they will continue to monitor COVID-19 coronavirus in the state.
“We don’t yet know exactly how easily COVID-19 spreads and how many people will experience severe illness,” said Dr. Alexia Harrist, state health officer and state epidemiologist with WDH. “We expect to identify more cases in the upcoming days and weeks. While we are facing a rapidly developing situation, the risk to most Wyoming residents remains low at this time.”
The department encourages people to sty home when sick and to avoid contact with other people unless medical attention is needed.
