March 5, 2020

While the risk to Wyoming residents remains low, the Wyoming Department of Health (WDH) has announced that it is becoming “increasingly likely” that the coronavirus – now officially named as COVID-19 – will spread to this state. The virus was first identified in Wuhan, China in late 2019 and has now appeared in numerous countries across the world, including the United States.

According to WDH, it is not yet known how easily the disease spreads and how many people will experience severe illness. However, the symptoms reported are familiar ones: fever, cough and shortness of breath.
