Wyoming on Tuesday continued to experience a surge in COVID-19 cases as health officials in Cheyenne linked the virus to workers at five local restaurants while Sweetwater County announced its largest one-week increase.
With 18 confirmed coronavirus cases announced Tuesday, the state has now confirmed more cases in June (299) than any previous month, even with one week to go. (The state announced 120 in March, 295 in April and 278 in May.)
Over the past 10 days, 204 total cases (confirmed and probable) have been added statewide, the state’s highest increase over a 10-day span thus far.
Workers at the five restaurants have either tested positive for COVID-19 or are probable cases, according a Tuesday announcement from the Cheyenne Laramie County Health Department announcement.
The restaurants are:
Accomplice Brewing Company at the Depot;
Rib and Chop House;
Buffalo Wild Wings;
Tortilla Factory on South Greeley Highway; and
“All the facilities impacted are working closely with the Health Department to identify potentially impacted staff,” county health department director Kathy Emmons said in a news release. “They are committed to public safety and are also completing deep cleaning of their establishments.”
