Three Sheridan County variances are currently in effect and will remain in effect until Friday, May 15, 2020.  Those variances allow limited indoor and outdoor seating for all restaurants, cafes, bars, breweries, and other establishments serving food and drink, along with modified church services.

State Health Officer Alexia Harrist released the fourth continuation of statewide health orders.  Those orders go into effect on Friday, May 15, 2020 and are set to expire May 31, 2020.  Those orders closely match the current Sheridan County variances and grant more allowances in some cases.  As a result, Sheridan County will NOT re-apply for those variances, but will continue to evaluate the need for county-wide variances in the coming week.

The new state orders can be found on the Wyoming department of Health website at:

The state and local phased approach of reopening will be closely monitored by Sheridan County Public Health and the Sheridan County Health Officer relating to new local COVID-19 cases.
