Incident Management Team Situation Report December 03, 2020 at 4:00pm

 Reminder, Situation Reports will be posted on Tuesdays and Thursdays, unless urgent information becomes necessary. 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  (dated 12/01/2020)

First Confirmed COVID-19 Death in Hot Springs County

The first Coronavirus-related death of a Hot Springs County resident who tested positive for COVID-19 has been confirmed and added to the state’s count, according to the Wyoming Department of Health (WDH).

The older Hot Springs County man died on November 18, 2020. The man was hospitalized. The man had health conditions recognized as putting patients at higher risk of serious illness related to COVID-19.

We extend our deepest sympathies to his family and friends.

Deaths among Wyoming residents are added to the state’s total based on official death certificate information. If death certificates do not describe COVID-19 as either causing or contributing to a person’s death, those deaths are not included in Wyoming’s count. Timing of death certificate confirmation is inconsistent.

 

Attached please find the Seventeenth Continuation of the Public Health Orders. These orders go into effect on November 24 and will continue through December 15. 

There is a change to Order 1 with respect to group workout classes. Group workout classes will be limited to 25 participants. Aside from that change, Orders 1 and 3 remain the same.

                                         Order 2 has been changed with respect to gathering sizes as follows:

                                         Gatherings of more than 25 people in a confined space are prohibited

                                         Indoor events are limited in size to no more than 25% of venue capacity with a maximum of 100 people

                                         Outdoor events are limited in size to no more than 50% of venue capacity with a maximum of 250 people

                                         In addition, all exceptions to the gathering limits in Order 2 approved previously by the State Health Officer are revoked.    

                                         Please note, if a business or other entity (such as educational institutions) are governed by Order 1 or Order 3, they are not impacted by these changes to Order 2.
