SUBLETTE COUNTY —There are 18 active cases of COVID-19 in Sublette County with individuals isolating in Big Piney, Bondurant, Boulder, Daniel and Pinedale, Public Health Nurse Manager Janna Lee said in an update on April 9.
Lee’s update said cases are related to travel, close contact with a known positive case and community spread.
The Wyoming Department of Health has confirmed multiple variants existing in Sublette County. These variants are a concern, Lee said, because they have been shown to transmit more easily, may lead to more serious illness or may have resistance to some COVID-19 treatment options.
Sublette County Public Health encourages people to get vaccinated, practice social distancing, wear face coverings when in confined public spaces, staying home when sick and wash hands frequently to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus.
Public Health continues to offer registration for those looking to get vaccinated. Simply go to www.sublettewycovid.com/vaccines and fill out the Google Survey. Public Health continues to receive doses of the Moderna and Johnson and Johnson vaccines.
As of April 9 there have been 1,995 first doses and 1,636 second doses of the Moderna vaccine, as well as 185 doses of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, administered in Sublette County.
