There remain just two reported presumptive positive cases of the COVID-19 virus in Sheridan County. WDH has determined both cases to be linked to one another. Both patients, one female and one male, are currently isolated in their own homes and they are being monitored by Sheridan County Public Health. Both patients are currently doing well. The second male patient was tested out of state and returned home to Sheridan County by personal vehicle. Only one other case has been reported in Wyoming (Fremont County) which brings the total number of cases to three in Wyoming. To date, all other Sheridan County test results have returned negative.
This situation remains fluid and is ever-changing. Communication with Sheridan County schools and municipalities will continue, and updates will be provided as they become available.
The public is encouraged to follow these guidelines outlined by the CDC and WDH:
· Avoid close contact (within 6 feet) with those who are sick or may have been exposed.
· Stay home if sick (but if you are concerned it may be more than just a cold, please consult your physician).
· Elderly and vulnerable individuals should avoid gatherings of 250 or more people.
· Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
· Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty
