Wyoming’s Coronavirus-Related Death Count Increases

Posted on May 17th, 2020

A Fremont County resident previously identified as one of Wyoming’s laboratory-confirmed coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) cases has died, according to the Wyoming Department of Health (WDH). The newly confirmed death involves an older hospitalized woman who had existing conditions that put her at higher risk of serious illness related to the virus. There have now been 8 reported deaths, 559 lab-confirmed cases and 182 probable cases reported so far from across Wyoming. WDH recommendations to help slow the spread of illness include:
  • Follow current public health orders.
  • Stay home when sick and avoid contact with other people unless you need medical attention.
  • Follow common-sense steps such as washing your hands often and well; covering your coughs and sneezes; and cleaning and disinfecting.
  • Wear cloth face coverings in public setting where social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.
  • Older people and those with health conditions that mean they have a higher chance of getting seriously ill should avoid close-contact situations.
Disease symptoms, which may appear 2 to 14 days after virus exposure, include fever, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat and new loss of taste or smell.
