Five New COVID-19 Cases Confirmed Monday
In Sublette County
by Sublette COVID-19 Response Group
September 15, 2020

When the Wyoming Department of Health issues its daily
update of new COVID-19 cases this afternoon, it will show
that Sublette County has at least five new COVID-19
confirmed cases. These cases involve a wide age range, from
a teenager to people in their 20s, 30s, 60s, and 70s. Two of
the cases were close contacts of previously identified
cases, and one case is a Pinedale High School student – the
fourth school-related case in the county since the new
school year began in late August.

Students who test positive for the virus are excluded from
school through isolation orders issued by public health
officials, and are allowed to return to school when the
isolation order is lifted.

Families will be receiving an email from Public Health if
their student had ANY POSSIBLE contact with the student. If
you receive this email from Public Health, please monitor
your student and contact your medical provider if they have
any symptoms. This does not mean that your student needs to
quarantine. Anyone who needs to quarantine will be called on
the phone directly by Public Health.

Sublette County has had a total of 48 confirmed cases, in
addition to 12 probable cases, with 51 recoveries. One
Sublette County resident died after contracting the virus in
a long-term care facility out of state. There are about two
dozen residents currently in isolation or quarantine due to
the coronavirus.

People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms
reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness.
Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus.
People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:
• Fever or chills
• Cough
• Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
• Fatigue
• Muscle or body aches
• Headache
• New loss of taste or smell
• Sore throat
• Congestion or runny nose
• Nausea or vomiting
• Diarrhea

Anyone can have mild to severe symptoms. Older adults and
people who have severe underlying medical conditions like
heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk
for developing more serious complications from COVID-19
