The Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce is continuously monitoring the developments of COVID-19 locally, regionally, and nationally to prepare and protect our business community. As the situation continues to evolve, it is important for all employers to monitor the outbreak and implement strategies to protect their workforce while ensuring continuity of operations.
To help educate employers and employees on how they can prepare for and address the impacts of the virus, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce has created a toolkit of resources that we hope you will use and share.
On a local level, Cheyenne Regional Medical Center (CRMC) has been working on a plan to help safeguard staff, patients and visitors. To help control the spread of germs and the potential for COVID-19 to impact patients and staff, voluntary visitor restrictions will be implemented. CRMC recommends visiting the Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website for more information on how to protect yourself and others.
The Wyoming Department of Health has confirmed Wyoming’s first positive case of COVID-19. The state’s first case is a woman from Sheridan County.
As a reminder, all of us need to remain vigilant in our efforts to:
- Wash hands frequently
- Cover mouth and nose while coughing and sneezing
- Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
- Avoid large crowds or physical contact when greeting others
- Limit contact with others if you are sick by staying home.
