Sheridan County received notification there are two (2) new confirmed cases of the COVID-19 virus in Sheridan County. The two new cases have been linked to previous Sheridan County COVID-19 cases. Both patients are at home in isolation, doing well, and being monitored by Sheridan County Public Health. Sheridan County Public Health and Wyoming Department of Health (WDH) are conducting follow up investigations to determine at-risk close contacts of the new reported cases.
This brings the total number of COVID-19 cases to eight (8) in Sheridan County. Sheridan County Health Officer, Dr. Ian Hunter, asks Sheridan County residents to follow WDH and CDC’s guidelines and statewide orders.
“I understand families may need to venture out to get groceries or essential household items,” Dr. Hunter said. “If and when you do, please only have one member of the household enter stores to reduce the risk of exposure and help keep store crowds to a minimum.”
Dr. Hunter went on to say, “Please, please, do not become complacent. Help do your part by staying home if you are sick, and please continue to practice social distancing. This will help our community protect our vulnerable population, flatten the curve, and slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus.”
