Updated public health orders ease restrictions

Starting June 15

CHEYENNE — Updated public health orders will continue to ease restrictions on public gatherings in Wyoming, Gov. Mark Gordon announced today.

Starting June 15, the updated orders allow indoor gatherings of up to 250 people with restrictions; permit parades to occur with appropriate social distancing; and allow K-12 schools, community colleges, the University of Wyoming and other educational institutions to reopen facilities and resume in-person instruction for all students.

“Wyoming has made outstanding progress to date,” Gordon said. “Folks need to remember that it is important to remain vigilant, but because we have been so successful, I am confident we can continue lifting the very few remaining public health restrictions.”

Wyoming’s COVID-19 dashboard has been updated to reflect the improvement in the statewide metrics used to ease restrictions. The number of new cases has changed from “concerning” to “stabilizing,” and the percent of all tests that are positive is now rated as “improving."
