Wyoming approves mask order for Teton County

Masks are now required in Teton County, the result of a long-sought countywide mask order the state approved as COVID-19 makes its return to the valley. The order includes some exceptions.


State Health Officer Dr. Alexia Harrist signed the order Monday, hours after the Teton County Board of County Commissioners voted unanimously to approve a resolution that supported mask wearing and, more specifically, Teton District Health Officer Travis Riddell’s bid for a countywide mask order. Commissioners appoint Riddell, but he answers to Harrist, whose signature is required to make county health orders law.
