Sweetwater County healthcare agencies were made aware Sunday, April 12, 2020, of a traveler in the area who tested positive for COVID-19.

The male traveler in his 50s from Florida remains in good condition and continues to self-isolate in Rock Springs, according to Sweetwater County Public Health.

While he will not officially be counted as a Sweetwater County or Wyoming case, local contact tracing in now underway, according to Sweetwater County Public Health.

Three of Sweetwater County’s nine people who tested positive are now fully recovered. The others are in good condition in self-isolation.

To stop community spread, it’s important to stay 6-feet away from people you are not housed with, send only one person to the grocery story, and stay home if possible.
