Sublette County has recorded only one new lab-confirmed case of COVID-19 in the last 10 days. So far during the pandemic, the county has had 40 confirmed cases, 9 probable cases, and the death of a county resident who contracted the virus and passed away while staying in an out-of-state care facility.
While most COVID-19 patients have been able to recover at home, one person remains hospitalized. Sublette County Public Health reports that there are currently 7 people in isolation or quarantine in the Pinedale and Daniel areas.
The slow increase in coronavirus cases in the county demonstrates the people of Sublette County are working to keep the economy and schools open by taking steps to slow the spread of COVID-19 in the county. Those steps include staying home while sick, maintaining social distancing, wearing face coverings, washing hands often, covering coughs and sneezes, and regularly disinfecting surfaces and frequently touched objects.
This week the Sublette COVID-19 Response Group presented a certificate of excellence to Rivera Lodge for maintaining consistently high operational standards in protecting staff and customers from the spread of COVID-19. Well done!
