Reports of virus in state discredited

Online post stirs unnecessary coronavirus concerns


February 6, 2020

Rumors spread last week that coronavirus had been diagnosed in Wyoming. Crook County Public Health reassures the public that this information was incorrect and there is currently no danger of contracting the virus in this state.

“We have no diagnosed or suspected cases of coronavirus in the State of Wyoming, or in any of the adjoining states around Wyoming, at this time,” says Becky Tinsley, Crook County Public Health.

“It’s not an immediate threat here. The things that were posted [on websites based in Wyoming], we don’t even know where they came up with that information.”
