Dear Wyoming Military Department,
As many of you know, Governor Mark Gordon and State Health Officer Dr. Alexia Harrist have extended the three existing statewide health orders through April 30 to slow community transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19) and protect lives. He has not released a stay at home order for Wyoming citizens but his message is clear: stay at home for the next 7-10 days to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
The Governor continues to emphatically state that people need to stay home whenever possible to prevent or slow the spread of the virus. These orders are meant to enforce that direction through April. Specifically, the current orders closing public places including schools, prohibiting gatherings of 10 people or more in a single room or confined space (including outdoors) and closing bars, restaurants, coffee shops and some personal services businesses will continue through April 30. Food establishments can continue to provide delivery services, but carry-out service is now required to take place curbside.
If you or any individual is coming to Wyoming from another state or country for a non-work related purpose to immediately self-quarantine for 14 days. For visits fewer than 14 days, that individual must self-quarantine for the duration of the visit. This directive given by the Governor is intended to discourage out-of-state visitation during the pandemic and reduce the spread of COVID-19.
We must count on each other to take actions that reduce the loss of life and prevent the spread of the virus. Stay home as much as possible these next 7-10 days. Together, we remain the sword and shield for our state and nation.
