Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
The Wyoming Department of Health is actively responding to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.
The symptoms of this disease are familiar: fever, cough and shortness of breath.
While most people will likely not experience serious illness related to COVID-19, our top concerns involve older residents and people with certain health conditions that put them at higher risk of developing a serious or life-threatening illness.
Wyoming residents should follow our recommendations to help avoid becoming ill and to help avoid spreading COVID-19 to those who are most vulnerable.
We should all work together to help keep our friends and neighbors safe!
- Follow current public health orders.
- Follow advice from CDC on what to do if you think you may be sick.
- Stay home when sick and avoid contact with other people unless you need medical attention.
- Follow common-sense steps such as washing your hands often and well; covering your coughs and sneezes; and cleaning and disinfecting.
- Nursing homes, assisted living facilities and other healthcare facilities should closely follow guidelines for infection control and prevention.
- Older people and those with health conditions that mean they have a higher chance of getting seriously ill should avoid close-contact situations.
