Updates will be provided by the Board of County Commission Incident Management Team twice daily at 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. via media releases at sheridancounty.com.
The Board of County Commission Incident Management Team consists of the Sheridan County Health Officer, Sheridan County Public Health, and other community stakeholders.
The CDC, in accordance with its guidance for large events and mass gatherings, recommends that for the next 8 weeks, organizers (whether groups or individuals) cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the United States. This recommendation does not apply to the day to day operation of organizations such as schools, institutes of higher learning, or businesses. For more information please visit cdc.gov.
There remain just two reported presumptive positive cases of the COVID-19 virus in Sheridan County. Both patients, one female and one male, are currently isolated in their own homes, doing well, and being monitored by Sheridan County Public Health. 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).
· Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe
