Goshen County Public Health officials were notified of the third laboratory confirmed case of COVID-19 on April 5, 2020. This individual is a female in her 20s and is a close contact to a previously identified case. The Wyoming Department of Health is investigating this case and high risk contacts will be notified.
Local agencies will continue to provide community education about mitigation efforts such as social distancing. Evidence from other affected cities and countries clearly shows that areas that initiated mitigation measures prior to widespread community transmission are significantly better able to address their community’s needs.
If you have a fever, cough, or influenza-like symptoms; if you have had close contact with a person known to have COVID-19; or if you have traveled within the last 14 days to an area with widespread transmission, you should recover at home and call your provider.
