As of 10 a.m., March 30, 2020 

  1. Wyoming: Confirmed cases of COVID-19: 109.
  2. By county: Fremont still leads the state with 25 cases, followed by Laramie with 22, Teton with 20, Natrona with 12 and Sheridan with 10. Johnson has 7, Carbon has 3, Sweetwater 2, Campbell 2, while Albany, Converse, Goshen, Park, Sublette, and Washakie all have 1 reported case.
  3. Testing: 2,108 tests had been administered and processed, according to the Wyoming Department of Health.
  4. United States: 164,785 confirmed cases, according to Johns Hopkins Institute. Total deaths: 3,173 — Total recoveries: 5,995.
  5. The latest: As Wyoming case counts continue to climb, hospitals and health officials around the state prepare for a surge of patients they hope does not materialize — while inadequate testing makes it difficult to pin down just how widespread the disease is. “Relying on identifying positive cases through early testing – well, that would have been ideal, but that ship has sailed,” one Laramie doctor said. Sixteen COVID-19 patients have been hospitalized in Wyoming since the crisis began, state officials said.
  6. More news:The Wyoming Legislature will likely hold a special session to address impacts of the pandemic and distribute federal stimulus money. School districts around the state are innovating to maintain connection with their students, while law enforcement agencies are implementing their own safety measures. Social distancing is “worth it,” Wyoming economists told the Wyoming Tribune Eagle.
